Can a rear discharge finish deck in a 72 with 3 24 inch blades with enough power mow tall road style grass at a good clip well in one pass?

If my 72 Super Z with a XR7 had enough power it can knock 2 week old to 1 month bahai down in one pass at a good clip.

Is the slinger style blades like on the Kurtse I looked at today better for mowing tall grass fast?

any help is great and thanks for replies.

Maybe he is talking about an all flex mower? They won't mow good at anything over a good walking speed. And thy won't mow down tall stuff good.

Don't kill you mower trying to pick up some extra work, your not going to be able to mow your normal yards if you break your mowing trying to do something its not meant to do.
