    What is the best single blade mower for getting stingers and knocking the grass down in one pass if you are pushing it fast? I know it is a stupid ?

    Also what kind of set up on the motor these days do they have to keep you from bending the motor shaft if you strick something with the blade.

    Thanks for any help.

    More importantly, what are you planning to do? Exmark makes a very powerful 21 inch.

    I would say the Exmark Commercial 21. It leaves a VERY clean cut. Also you have about 5 different blade options for it so it works for most any occasion.

    I haven't used a 21 in like decades so I am behind the times, don't the new 21's have like a clutch so you will not destroy the motor if you strike something solid ?

    I want to use one at like 10 MPH do you think they can cut as good as a Z at that speed?

    Thanks for the help.

    The fasted most Commercial 21s will go is 4.2 Miles Per Hour. Some of them have a blade clutch you can use to disengage the blade while the engine and drive system are still on, but that is it. None of them will go 10 MPH, Idk if it is possible for the human body to move that fast either.

    Also, I have hit a lot of hard objects with my Kawasaki powered Exmarks. Typically most engine companies make very durable engine shafts for the engines.

    I have a job this season where you cannot get a bigger mower on and their are all kinds of cypress roots, It is usually weed eated but I want to lose 40 pounds so I am going to run with a push mower for exercise but the job only gets done every 3 weeks and it is Bahai with stingers.

    I need a tough mower for stingers where the motor shaft will not get damaged. It does not need to be self propelled Thanks for all help.

    I don't want to use a trimmer, my XR7 Hustler will knock down fast in one pass. Aren't their any like high wheel mowers designed for this?

    You will be sprinting behind it at that speed
