I've heard some say the Ultra Cut isn't that great in weedy lots but in this area it's the one I have to pull off the trailer to get the job done. John Gamba said the ultra cut didn't do well there in weedy lots and I don't doubt him since he is much more experienced than I. But anyway this is the type lot that nothing but the Lazer will cut for me without laying grass over. The Huslter wouldn't cut it period and the Scag leave a little bit of uneven cut. The height is set one 3.5" but it cuts at 3.25" at that setting. It's hard to ever find a stragler and I will show some close ups to show how bad this turf is. Very little grass, mosty weeds, clover, etc with some stems approaching 10". Not trying to make a point really, just showing the reason I like the Ultra Cut because of this type of mess I have to deal with. It's funny this guy mows it with a JD tractor and it leaves a better cut than the Hustler did. I tried the Scag on it and it didn't leave any straglers but it just wasn't overly as smooth as the Ultra Cut. Which I know smooth is relative on a nasty lot like this. The Lazer works better than the other mowers I've used here including Scag, Hustler, Grasshopper, and Dixie.
