I have seen several people on this site who like to single cut because it takes less time. That may be good for you guys and the type of grasses you mow, but I love the way a double cut lawn looks. Look at some of Eric's great pics (that's how my nice lawns look except I use a 48" GD w/b with Velkie). I don't think that a single cut can come close to that look. I double cut 95% of my client's lawns. They love it, and I love the pay off and compliments. By the way, I am one of about 3 LCO's that does double cut up here out of about 63 LCO's in my area. How do you guys feel about double cuts vs. single if you get paid better for a double?
