    What a 20 year old Greensmaster does to zoysia at 3/4". This lawn is no where near level and turning the corner drops at least a foot.

    Looks good! I dig the mower. I like your signature too. You mow a lot of that stuff?

    Most professionally maintained fine turf is zoysia in Hawaii.

    That is a sweet vintage Toro. Have you had it all these years or did you just purchase it recently?

    What type of Zoysia is that?
    I have Emerald Green and using my Locke you can hardly keep a straight line since the turf is so thick the wheels don't touch dirt, have you ever had that problem?
    I use a JD tri plex greens mower now

    Just got it a couple of months ago. Golf course was trading in for the latest models, so about 6 of these ended up at the Toro distributor.

    That is El Toro. On Emerald zoysia, you want a very heavy mower that does not allow the reel to pivot up. The Greensmaster rides on a heavy aluminum drum with a steel core in the back. No floating on thicker grasses.
