    Some yards are fescue and probably some Bahia in other yards, so that being said, would it work to be cutting at like 3.75 for a meet in the middle? Oh by the way, dumb question here, what do you mean by, "a few and far from a fixed deck"? Thanks:)!

    Are you sure they are Bahia grass? I didn't think Tenn had much of it 3.75 is a good compromise. What I meant was Bermuda, Centipede and Zoysia are a definite minority in the lawns you will likely see.

    No, I didn't really know, that's why I said probably, but anyway, thank you that's good news if I want to go with the swz, haven't really decided yet, I would love your/you'll opinion on that!

    And also, what are the best cutting heights for grasses around me,? Fescue zoysia centipede Bermuda? And are there more?
    I havnt really learned about identifying grass types, except for like scotts website which I didn't really get good info from it. Thanks

    Research your State Extension service. Betting they'll have archived info that will be non-biased as far as what works and when to do what. It may not be laid out pretty, but by sifting through it you'll learn a lot about your area...and regional turf-types.

    So have you been down to your dealer and looked at the different machines? The SWZ is a solid jack of all trades. Hydro performance and the fixed deck keeps it cost effective. Pair it with a good platform as I don't think you want to run 7mph.

    Yeah, iv looked into the swzt and the swz. I like the new feature if the swzt (controls design and heigh adjustment) but iv always!! Love the swz! It is like you said. A jack of all trades! This year I'll be able to tell on which mower I should get based on my customers, (because I think I'll need to changes the height in the field sometimes. I would love your imput on the swz! And the swzt also is you've got some time:) thanks!
