Puppy, I was stating that the conditions that you tested the mowers in behind your poultry barn was not something that a commercial mower was designed for. This is where my "brush hogging" statement came in. Can commercial mowers cut that? Yes, but they will not produce an acceptable cut in those conditions. Productivity wise, if you were to cut that tall of grass all the time you would be better off with a 15' batwing mower behind your tractor. That being said, I am not implying that you tried to hold a biased opinion in the review. I'm saying that the gravely was at a disadvantage with the way the deck was set up. The fact that you would not remove the baffles to try and open up the deck plays into that as well. Would it have changed anything? I can honestly say I don't know, but in theory if the deck were more free flowing then it should have helped at least somewhat.
