    Just wondering what height you guys used to cut? I adjusted the mower down to three inches today to do my own yard but it came oout a lil short i think. What are you guys in the NJ and NJ area using for your heights? thanks

    i start/end short too, but go up to 3.5 most of the summer on the shore in CT. some are up to 4.5-5" be careful comparing your height though. if you go by the mowers setting each mower is different. and not just brands, i had 3 bobcat ZTR's, 1 old, one an 05 and an 06, all three at the same height but cut at different heights, its a pita when you try to at the same height.
