    Everything I can find about zoysia says that it likes to be cut short -- in the 2 to 2-1/2 inch range, some say even shorter. When I do that with my JD 455 and a 60 inch deck, I get some unevenness in the cut. I think it comes from the fact that I'm stretching a 5 foot line over undulations in the yard that are significantly less than that, and/or the camber of the tractor on one pass is considerably different from the camber on the next pass.

    Have any of you pros noticed this -- uneven cuts with a wide deck and short mowing height?
