I cut all property on my farm that no one ever sees but me as if I were cutting grass on a prestigious golf course. Regardless of conditions or how long it takes I never leave clippings piled across grass.There are exceptions of course, but generally speaking, the cut quality standards of a professional are higher than that of a property owner. I'm sure there's some overlap between meticulous homeowners and sloppy contractors.
With that said, I appreciate the OPs posts no matter who's grass he's cutting.
Personally I'll pull those blades sooner. I don't like running disintegrating air foils on my blades.
Thanks for illustrating my point. There's a handful of leaves on the lawn in the second photo. I would never, ever have left those there!I cut all property on my farm that no one ever sees but me as if I were cutting grass on a prestigious golf course.

Who cares if he is telling people what to do, they don't have to listen? I've found @JLH52 to be an extremely pleasant member who has given me and other a lot of great advice. Who cares if he is not a professional. If it's taken you this long to realize that he isn't he's obviously knowledgeable. I trust what he says and his reviews of certain products are much better than any I've seen from anyone else on here.I am the one who started this rant. I learned in this particular thread that JL does not cut professionally. But there have been plenty of other threads where he was sharing what one should and should not do in terms of lawn care and purchasing lawn care equipment. He is sharing that on a professional lawn care site and leaving the impression that he understands what the professionals should do. Nobody said he was incapable of doing his own work. But he really should not be explaining what the (guy who cuts for a living - because "professional" hurts peoples feelings evidently) should be doing because he really doesn't have the first clue - kinda like I wouldn't tell him or puppy how to run a farm. He says he never tells anybody what to do but if you read his threads/posts he repeatedly refutes other people who disagree with his point.
I seems to me that people are categorized as either a Homeowner or a Professional. A Homeowner being one who maintains their own personal property. A Professional (LCO) as one who maintains the property of others as a means of income.Yeah i disagree with that claim.
I've tried out more stuff as a professional than I ever did as homeowner. I mean my mower parts collection has quadrupled since I started the business.
The grass buster thread is hilarious. It did start a buying frenzy, and really it's a good product, but the way the guy put it out there as just so far better than any other tool, has me laughing. I have a grass buster, i bought one as a result of that thread. It will get used, it's not overly expensive, so I'm happy with the purchase. I won't claim it to be the best scraper for my deck though, i still go for my extended handle 2"
