Newbie here. I am in need of a new mower. I am leaning towards the JD 717A except for the cut height. Specs only show a 1 1/2" minimum. I will be mowing my own lawn, 1 acre of 419 bremuda and wanted to mow at 1". JD dealer says there is NO WAY to make it mow lower. Any JD guys out there that have found a way to make it cut lower than 1 1/2". If not I am looking at a Gravely 144,148 or Kubota ZD321,326 any thoughts there?
