Check the operator headspace. It's one of those things that always gets overlooked when buying a Redhawk mower.

Yes, easily. I wouldn't call Bobcat and elite brand though

I've cut 14" tall grass with a Scag and it still left a nice even cut with no clumping at all. The only issue was the sheer volume of clippings that were left had to be dbl cut to make them disappear. After that you couldn't even tell it was high grass.

You figure out how to u/l pics yet?

Going to be hard to change pitch on a fixed deck walk-behind. If the tires have correct pressure and all spacers are correct you get what you get, you can play with tire pressure a little.

what i meant to say was make sure the spacers are correct and tire pressures are correct.
