Thanks.

I think Ferris might be your only option.

I tell you about quick height adjustments is everyone always wants their own dang cut height like they all know better
than I do what height I should cut their lawn but fact is they always want it shorter, most of these folks who have to have
the cut height adjusted want shorter, that's the whole problem, nobody has ever asked for me to cut it higher, it's always
shorter and like yeah right I'm mickey mouse too but even then you might think that stuff is all fine and dandy until...

You forget to RAISE the blades again right before hitting one of your really lush lawns!
Then you're F'd!

Not only is it going to clump like crazy and because you cut it too short it will probably either of scalp or burn it,
but now that you've made a few passes before you caught what was wrong with the mower, you HAVE
to finish the entire yard at that height or it won't look right.

So stop making silly suggestions to the manufacturers because they already done farkered up every mower in every which
way I can think of, but more than anything leave the sticky height Wb's alone because sometimes the fact that I CAN'T change
the cut height is the ONLY thing that saves me!

We have to have an easy adjust walk behind. That was my main reason for going with a Turf Tracer instead of a Metro. Bahia yards we might be cutting at 2 1/2" while Floratam will be at 4 1/2". Luckily we needed a 36" so there are several with easier height adjustments.

Doing so many lawns we have a paper for every lawn that lists what was done on each service along with the cutting height so that is the first thing I look at when I get to a property. I have never cut a yard shorter by accident, let alone made a couple of passes without noticing LOL.

Customers don't dictate what height we cut at.

Didn't know they made a 32", looks okay. How does the deck hold up? Appears to be stamped deck? Is it a single blade machine? How does it cut?
