I guess it will depend on how tall you are talking about, but the 930 has 25.5, which is only 1.5 less than the Kubby. I have the 950 which is a true 27. I have used it to cut down very thick, tall field rye mixed with clover and a bunch of other stemmy crap. The rye was groin high, with 1/4" thick stems. I had to go slow obviously, but even with my more tightly baffled MOD deck, I was able to cut it down in one pass without trouble. Of course I had to go over it a couple extra passes to get rid of the clippings, but the engine handled it fine. Unless you are going to try to cut very thick turf grass down from say 10" or 12"" to 3" or less in one pass at high speed, you won't have any trouble with either machine. The 7 Iron is as good a deck as you can buy for all types of grass.
