I saw this conversation on another lawncare/commercial mowing site and it generated quite a few responses. Figured I would bring it here for some thoughts. This concerns weekly mowing, with a WB or Z on well maintained grass. Not overgrown. A) When engaging blades to cut grass, lower the deck first to cutting height desired, then engage blades and start forward. B) When engaging blades to cut grass, engage blades with the deck at highest setting, then lower and start forward. Arguments on both sides for which method stresses and wears the belts quicker. Which method do you try and why?
