I don't use one. Our grass is so dry here even if it's irrigated that i just use Gator Blades and a block off plate. Hardly a clipping to be found.............

Thats pretty good for how tall that stuff was Do you mow for a management company ? (guessing by the height of the grass and pics).

Im looking at picking up a cheap diesel rider to maybe fill my schedule if needed with foreclosed stuff. The GH certainly handled that lawn fine.
