So I cut my lawn today with my new Lawn Boy commercial. Ah the pacific northwest! Anyway it far exceeded my expectations. The grass was about 6 inches long in some places while a few other areas still about 3 to 4 inches and not too dense. I mulched it all effortlessly. Way better than my HRC 216, and so light. It's like riding a 500 dirtbike and then riding a 125. The fast groundspeed issue was'nt a problem with the way the bail operates. The controls are great. It's just so much easier to use than the Honda. I really didn't expect it to make such a difference. Also a lot less wheel spin when starting off. So now I will have to see how she stands up over time.
