I don't know how that translates to speed but you seem to think it does. You can only mow as fast as the turf allows you to. Guys need to realize just because a Manufacturer says the mower can mow at 10.5, doesn't mean you can do it on all properties.
I was being sarcastic. The 35hp VG has plenty of torque and I've demoed plenty of diesels since being in business since 2000. The Vanguard only uses 2gph in very tall wet grass. It avgs 1.6 to 1.7 in most normal conditions. The last one I bought in June was $9400 +ttl.
