I have read posts in the past about double cutting using the regular mowing height on the first pass, and a slightly higher setting on the second pass. Why? Is the clipping distribution on the second pass better with a higher deck setting?
Typically I have mowed the highest on the first pass, lowering the deck slightly for the second pass. My thinking was to create the fewest clippings on the first pass with the higher setting. On the second pass, the small amount being mowed off will be, by definition, short clippings and not a problem.
Thoughts/comments about using two height settings and why ....
