Hey guys. I have a quick question for you Groundmaster users. My question is how fast can you mow with a 44" and 18 HP engine (don't know brand) deck and mulch without clumps/inperfections? I will be mowing when it is dry grass, just incase anybody wants to know that. I ask this because I'm seriously looking at a Toro Groundmaster GM118. I think it's a 1994 or something, I'm not really sure. I'm gonna bid a job that is around 1 1/2 acres and it would take me forever on a lawn tractor. I've mowed it before, it takes me about 4 hours with somebody helping me and I might be flying solo on it sometime in the future. I know the guy that is selling the Toro very well. He used it and some other Toro Groundmaster mowers to mow a cemetary. I know it's been well taken care of, but I haven't seen a picture of it so I'm not going to make assumptions. He said that he mowed his home lawn with it last time he was at home so I know it still runs LOL. Any answers to the mowing question and opinions welcome. No bashing opinions, though. Thanks. Later guys.
