    You have to vary your height depending on grass type. Very shady thin grass I cut very short.. 2 3/4... this helps to not leave "tracks" where the grass is just matted over under the tire tracks. Sod you have to cut higher. Highest i cut is 4" unless its brand new sod.. then im riding at 5-6"s

    Varies with the time of the year and type of grass

    Here on our cool season KB-we set the decks at 2 3/4 during vigorous spring growth, then up it to 3 1/2 as the weather heats up .
