    Some of the places I mow have more grass than that growing in just the cracks in the pavement.

    I cut that as short as I can................. with the whip.

    So you need an 8010 for that lawn???:laugh:

    It’s push mower lawn. How big did you eXpect it to be?

    If you flat topped that w/trimmer you’d be fired quick. LOL. That speck of turf gets close 30 weekly cuts under 2” this season.

    So he can stand at the end of the driveway and blow the entire account off without moving.

    Our final cuts before leaf cleanups in the last 11 days have been at 2 inches. This is minnesota grass. We've never experienced any problems with that low of a cut going into late fall/winter. Our clients yards are still super lushy green. Rain gauge is already at over 3 inches since 1am last night. Even with the wild swings in temps in the last 2 weeks from 29°F to 68°F, we have and have had no concerns whatsoever. I cut my own property 11 days ago at 2 inches. It has of as this morning still added a couple inches of growth even with the leaves raining down. To each area of the country, things can fluctuate wildy it seems.

    ditto here. Lawns still growing. Many were cut 2” or less all season.

    I've heard from a few sources that a final lower cut can mitigate snow mold. Anyone else hear this?
