I could not run a 10 mph machine, the specs. state 10 mph., but in reality, by the time the PTO is running, and the grass drag while mowing comes into play, you will be lucky if cutting at 8.5 mph. This becomes very tedious when crawling around at that slow of a speed.
The Flex Forks are Awesome! Surprised more guys don't run them. The amount of rain dictates how fast I can mow more than anything. Time is money in our business, I feel the need for Speed! :-)
