Bad Boy Cut pics

I know many on here are interested in the cut quality of the BB mowers. While it's proven itself worthy to many in the south I thought it would be good to show how it performs on northern grasses. I have a 100% KB yard and I'm on my 4th cut with my new mower. All I can say is WOW, I'm extremely pleased with the results. I'm slowly lifting the deck at each cut and will soon be at my usual 3.5" I cut today at 2.5" and the cut is near perfect. It leaves a carpet like finish even when cutting at speeds around 10mph. Here are some pics of my KB cut at 2.5 at speeds between 8-10mph. My grass hasn't even completely filled in yet from winter. Another two weeks or so and it should be totally full and thick. I'll keep posting back additional feedback as I progress throughout the season.

Is this one pass across the yard, or a double cut?

Dowst great pics, lets be real many are not truly interested in the cut quality of the Bad Boys; becuase this is proof postive, and vindication for many of us that have been supporting Bad Boy with our money & subsequent wise business investment/s. Glad to see you are truly happy, and did not listen to these many knuckle heads that would rather ride a car off a bridge in support of the Lawnsite ZTR brand hirearchy. Keep it coming my friend

Nothing special, just vigilant about my fert/water program. I do usually throw in one additional app of fert in the summer but that's about it. I've only put down my first app of Dimension/fert in mid March. I'll hit it again in late May with fert and depending on the amount of rain we get will probably start irrigation around then as well. Like I said, it hasn't even completely come in from this past winter. It's been quite cool here as well. Yesterday we actually hit 84 which is unseasonably warm for us this early. Things should really start sprouting now!
