I'm liking the new mower so far. Used it on some tall lawns yesterday and it handled it just fine.

Can't believe I may consider using a walk behind mower. All I can say is its about time someone offered a wider than low twenties cut. That being said they really should have incremental speed control. Fast or slow and medium is fine if every had the same size legs. Havn't found this to be the case though. Need to be able to adjust for the pace I want to walk don't need the mower tellin me how fast to walk and the condition of the grass to adjust.

Used it quite a bit today, Did not like this particular lush, green lawn mulching, Bogged down quite a bit, pulled the plug out and it did GREAT, fills the bag quite nicely...

When bogging in mulch mode...try to raise rear of deck one notch. DOC it can help. Also helps with bagging...in thicker growth.

Curious if there is already a built-in factory pitch? If so, would adding another 1/2" to the rear result in an uneven cut? Seems like this may result in stringers in the middle, or even at both sides?

ER, what is DOC? Is this slang/jargon/computer-speak? Netlingo.com only came up with "drug of choice"...

My "DOC" drug of choice is "runners high"....

In this Toro/ Exmark instance I meant Depending On Conditions.

I'll check for built in pitch on TimeMaster when I get a chance.

Stringers....? Not really since the blades are timed. Just a bit more air space back there helps with bagging. I also do this with my yBravo25 even though that mower already has built in pitch.

Most of my accounts are double cut....unfortunately.

I'm really glad Toro delivered on these higher lift blades.
