I will try to look for paper with optional lower lift blade part number tomorrow. My flashlight died and it is in my shed.

Yea, this mower drops more "cow turds" than any other mower I have used. Still love it though.

Apparenty Briggs now makes a 225 cc vertical shaft engine, if Kawi had something similar this mower would be worth a look.

I was talking about pictures of the lawns you've mowed with the 30, not pics of the blades. What's the finished product looking like?

We fill it up every day at the end and usually have over half a tank. We are currently mowing 30 lawns a day with it all around 3-5 k.

Got a exmark 30- love it so far, much better than the ECS metro 36 that I had- less turf damage and much more maneuverable, plus rear bagger.

This is based on normal growth. I am sure here this week or the next with the rain and heat the turf will kick into overdrive and be excessive. I am sure at that point it will use more fuel. All of our Kawi Fj180's engines never have really used a lot of fuel.
