Today I saw a LCO get through a 40'' gate with a 48'' mower. The mower was an exmark metro. The guy backed the mower up partially through the gate, then lifted the front of the mower about 3 feet and turned the mower so that he was through. It was all done in a matter of seconds and as if it was a common procedure. Do other people do this or was that weird? It made me think maybe I could have an extra foot of cutting width.
