    That’s good to hear that’s about how long I got on both my turf tigers original belts

    BigJlittleC,

    You haven't lived until you've tried a California Trimmer.
    You really are missing out on the finer things in life.

    The grass looks the same when they are done. They cut off so little it's like they barely did anything. Like to seem one of them try to cut 8-10 inch off and look as good as a rotary mower.

    Those aren't even lawns really. More like tiny personal putting greens. That mower would make a huge mess here in the upper mid west.

    That's predominately what's out here in California; small track house yards.
    Your 60 inch zero turn would never fit through the backyard gate.

    No, I realize that. I believe someone else posted to you earlier in the thread that location makes all the difference, and it definitely does. Here, where we cut at 3.5"-4" all year, reel type mowers are simply out of their element.

    i never said scraping was avoidable. i said reduced exponentially, which was the exact experience i've had and exactly what i stated. i made certain to say this was MY EXPERIENCE(since i knew you'd come along at some point and say i don't know how to mow properly) right in my post and others may have different results

    All Toro snowblowers and 21” mowers.

    Nothing bigger than 21 in either
