Looks to be a great cut all the same.
Hey, yep cut too low for winter that's for sure, but the home owner/client is a good friend of mine and he didn't mind me doing this for a decent test! He owns a John Deere himself and has been shaking his head at the bad QOC from the VX4 & is right on board with me testing new ZTRs !
Honestly I couldn't say the exact height, I can only say I had the deck set at 1.5" on the pin, but being a demo machine I didn't get time to check the height was correct, however I highly doubt it was cutting at 1.5" as that would cut into dirt no doubt. Im guessing somewhere between 2-2.5" was the height.
That grass is predominately Kikuya, which is happy at a height off 1.5" providing its cut regularly & irrigated/fed as with most grasses I assume. However when using a 60" wide deck, you cant cut undulations at 1.5" without getting into the dirt.
I regularly use the SP mower to cut our grasses over here between 1.4-1.7". Not sure how that compares to you guys when your using push mowers, but im assuming you would maintain the 3"+ height.
