    OK do yous think a 52'' 25hp combo on a GD charriot could mow 6ft (moderate thickness) grass with ease or would it strugle a little.

    5-6 acres

    I know I'll have to double cut.

    But you think It'll handle it OK or will be hearing that strugling sound through out the cut.

    I really havn't cut much stuff like this with the Charriot before.

    Thanks for ya thoughts .

    Is this a real scenario? 6' grass with a rotary mower! This is why they have bush hogs.

    One word - BUSHHOG. I'm with Mark - don't tear up a good Z doing somebody's cheap work. If they let it get that high they need to take the money they saved on it and hire a bushog to do it.

    FIVE words, I don't got no bushhog

    Why would that mess up the mower ??

    I not intrested in an apinion from guys that just do finish mowing.
    I don't need a lecture on keeping my Z in good condition either.

    Back to the orriginal question "OK do yous think a 52'' 25hp combo on a GD charriot could mow 6ft (moderate thickness) grass with ease or would it strugle a little."

    BTW: Whats this cheap work stuff??
    I make better money on Slashing than I do finish mowing.
    I'll be making $45 - $75 an hour cutting long grass and when the Z is tierd I'll trade it in for a new one.
