    Hello everyone.

    My 28" WorldLawn mower is near to become crap, still works but is a pain in the a$$ sometimes. I was thinking to get a Grasshopper 321D 48":cool2: but right now I can't justify the cost of this thing. I was thinking to get a 32" I measure some of the gates and seems that a 36" would fit just fine :cool2: so why not get a hydro.
    Here in south Texas is dry, everything is all flat and I mow St. Agustin. With that been said I have always do the maintenance myself, and have always bought parts online.
    I was looking at the John Deere WH36A
    What do you guys think?

    Are all 36" mowers 36" wide? NO.

    I'd look at a Snapper Pro. Great mower and less money if you're buying new.

    The Snapper Pro SW20 is great! 100+ pounds lighter and little over 1k cheaper. But it only goes to 4.5" the dear goes to 5"
    my cheapo mower only goes to 4" I need 5"

    Why do you need 5" cutting height here in TX?

    Ok. That's news to me. The highest I cut St Aug is 3.75". I have some St Aug yards on 1mil + homes. Here's the folks at TX A&M thoughts on this.

    5" is really tall for St. Augustine.

    St. Augustine should be cut to a height of 2 1/2" to 3" and 3" to 3 1/2" in shady areasÂ…3" is generally a good all around height if you have a mixture of sunny and shady areas.

    The S Series do not. That said I have a 2013 S Series 48 and absolutely love it. It is a tank and has plenty of power.
