    When I say 'CRISP' that's what I mean.
    Looks sucked up and cut off.
    Just like the Gunny's buzz-cut.

    Crisp just like the cut I get from mine.
    Only difference is my tire tracks don't show as much due to the wider tires.

    Looks great and looks like you were taking off a fair amount of sticky turf.

    Yeah this northern grass this time of year is super moist and deep. The blades of grass in the spring actually hold water inside the blade. That was cut at 2 3/4" just 2 days after we got 3" of rain. I dont think I will be able to get away with that next week. might have to bump it up to our normal 3" to 3 1/4".

    Yeah... I do...

    Cuts those just as good as the rest.

    Have you ever cut any of it that was wicked thick and also had plenty of fescue in it as well... co-ed lawn?

    You know how most mowers just make a frightning mess the first pass, that you have to clean up with extra passes.

    Well, that is no more for me.

    The worst I ever saw it do is I cut one such place right after a rain that had 3 weeks growth. In the worst places it left behind these loose tangle stacks of clippings. No tight clumps, just fluff balls. Unreal.

    Might be too early, but does anyone have some nice Bermuda stripes to show off?
