Hey Brandon do you use a mulching plate on your scag? I have one for my 48" scag and only use it in the off season. I was thinking about getting me one for my 61" scag and use it the same way. It's like you pretty much don't need it. Only on weekly account that would be easy to mulch.

Why you double cut anyway. That's more time you spend on one yard. Time is money in this type of business. 💵💵💰

For stripes probably...double cutting helps bring them out really well. And really it only takes like maybe 10-15% more time.

What's up Blade, how's the weather out there? We're getting slammed out here. We're under flash flood watch until tomorrow evening.
