    What kind of grass are you cutting? Sure you cut fescue 3 to 4 inchs... but you cut bermuda, zoysia, and st. augustine at a much lower level. What do you have in your area?

    Most of my accounts are fescue, and I cut them at 3 inches.

    We got Kentucky Blue, Rye, and Fescue... cut them at 3" unless the customer really has a good reason for something different.

    Just under 3" measured on average. Our mowers say 4 1/4" on the height adjustment, on concrete.
