    Hello All ,

    I have a Little League sized Baseball field and am considering a Super Z . I have seeded with a Perenial Ryegrass mix and I intend to keep it at 1.25 inches . My ?'s are many ... Why Hustler ? Why not Toro or Deere ? Which engine ? I am also considering a reel mower , as the quality of cut is hugely important to me . I do realize that a rotary will be easier to live with , but will I like the quality of the cut ? Does the striper do a good job ? Basically I'm in need of some advice from an expert . Any help is much appreciated !! Thanks a ton !!!

    1.25 ???
    That is quite low for a rotary mower, it would have to be pool table flat for a rotary mower to cut it without scalping it.
    It would also need to be mowed about every other day at that height.
    Are you sure you want a rotary?
    Look at the build quality of the brands you are looking at, look at the components used in the unit.
    And most of all drive them and compare them.
