    Hopefully you guys who start bermuda out at 2+ inches in the spring will see these photos and realize that a rotary mower can cut a bermuda lawn effectively short without scalping. John Deere L108 with gators.

    It has nothing to do with the mower. It's the surface prep. If you have a lawn surface that has dips and high spots you will get scalping and terracing regardless of the size or type of mower. Properly prepare the surface and the mower for low cutting and you could cut at 1/4" with a 72" ZTR if you wanted to. Most people have neither the time, patience or money to do a golf course type of yard surface.

    Hell man, sand is pretty cheap, and it does a great job of leveling. I just get tired of seeing LCOs cut bermuda at 3", it is horrible for the grasses' health.

    Thanks for the compliments on my yard, beer, and wife. I enjoy them all very much.
    (not sure in which order, though) :)
