after mowing for 25{plus} years....I like the faster speeds that are available.
This is speaking for Southern lawns. I started out in TX where the temps get up to 120 on a lwan in direct sunlight- through the dog days of the summer at that. That was mowing at about 3.5" on treated and irrigated lawns.
Always quality cuts there, chit looks like carpet when mowing at 3" on bermu.
even full stick with lazer Z's

Nowadays I mow northern lawns in MN. at 4"...thin grass is kind of different.
It doesn't always stand up, so yeah, the faster speed seems less viable
through the hottest part of summer on KBG. Cutting lower tends to fry KBG in the heat, if not being watered adequatly.
