    Is there anybody using the XR 7 Deck with the mulching kit on Hybrid 419 Bermuda after one week of growth, if so how does it do, especially in heavy morning dew?
    The Bermuda is growing like mad now with all the heat, about 4 inches or more per week on the better lawns that are watered and fertilized.

    Hot season grass is really where the xr-7 comes into it's own. It does a great job on 419 at 2.75 to 3 inches. You may need to double cut if you are mulching.... and if it's wet, it still does a great job, just make sure not to stain driveways and sidewalks.

    ps... if the grass is really popping, you may need to discharge.

    The highest I ever cut Bermuda is 2.5" normally from July through Sept. all the other times I cut at 2". Thanks, any issues with the new deck?
    I see problems with relays and switches quite a bit on the Hustler forumn, do you use the flex forks? I loved the way it handles, buy far the easiest and most comfortable to drive that I've tested.
