This is my neighbour's new X-One that he got in June. There's a price war at the moment , but the wholesale is heading north real soon.

............. I'll get a Warn winch
for getting out of tight spots Mick ;-) . Neighbour's X had to be pulled out of a
seasonal stream bed that he ventured into for some inexplicable reason.
I didn't even go down there with my BX when I cut his lawns during his vacation.

There is definitely no grass in his pictures that comes close to the thick matted look of your grasses, at least the grass you've shown in the videos. His grasses looks a great deal thinner and more upright, but pictures can be deceiving.

Mick , is that Buffalo grass ? We had something like that in Tarragindi
and it was really hard going with sooo much wet clippings.
All the grass up here on the Blackall Range is cattle paddock mixes.

LR3,

thats a pretty good picture of your hillside yard.... looks a lot like my inclines... you just have a much nicer place. :-)

from everything you guys are posting it seems these new hyperdrive's are going up & down places that ate up the regular super z's....

thanks for sharing!

Im pretty sure I can see Kikuyu patches in his lawn, the lighter green in that little gully. Id bet theres Bermuda (Queensland blue couch among others) and other weedy grass too. Pretty much the same as me. His climate is the same as mine as well, turf types, weeds etc etc will be the same. Soils may be a little different but I bet its still clay based.
Remember Puppy, like you, LR3 isnt a contractor, this is his own home so can mow how and when ever he likes, if its not too wet.

LR3, what happened to the Kubota? Was just looking at your old thread. I remembered seeing pics in it...

I'll be interested to see how you go once the season starts and the grass kicks on.

All the grass up here on the Blackall Range is cattle paddock mixes.
Up near the house, top right corner Sir Walter has been laid but the rest is just pasture type stuff. Carpet grass, couches (bermuda), some Kik etc etc. Its survival of the fittest in a given area you might say.
Its the same everywhere, not many places have just one turf type unless its new and had something laid. Rare on acreage due to cost obviously.
Most around here is ex dairy and Im guessing, like yours. Nothing gets planted, just mowed regrowth like what you have.
Nothing special about any of it, shouldnt be this difficult to cut! Never used to be!

SDK, the hydros ARE awesome, theres no doubt about it!
