Looks great! What is your height of cut? I have yet to use my 60D, but hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to stipe my lawn or not. Couldn’t do it with my cub because it didn’t have live PTO.

I generally keep it pretty long, somewhere between 4"-5". I have not watered all year as we've had generous amounts of rain up until now.

I’m in the camp of long grass as well. I think 3.5-4” is ideal for home lawns. I have no way of watering, so taller grass and longer roots is best.

I cut mine at 2”. Supposed cut at 1.5” but the auto connect deck won’t go that low without digging a trench with the front foot.

Southern Bermuda grass lawn. If you cut any longer it won’t fill in or get thick. No irrigation.

Jeez, kind of a big machine and deck for that size lawn! What does it take you, 3 passes? :lol:
Looks great!
That’s like me. People who drive by and see the front probably think I’m nuts.

LoL. We live on four acres, 1/2 wooded and 1/2 lawn. That’s just a piece of the front lawn. I mow about two acres at the homestead every week. Still overkill I know, but I do enjoy having BadAss for all the projects I do.

I cut mine at 3". I don't know if it's even possible to cut at 4+" with mine. I don't think it goes that high!
Using the 3pt adjustment, my lock knob is set at 8.5, and the deck stop is set to max height.
Even with the 3pt all the way up, it won't go into "lock"

I am going to take a measurement to see precisely what the height of my blades are when I set the height knob to the various height adjustments. Last time I cut, I had the knob set at "4" which I believe is somewhere between 4"-5" of blade height. I sometimes cut at knob setting 3.5, but never lower than that. I am going to take actual measurements and see what the blade height is at these settings. Results should be interesting.... Has anyone else made these measurements on the new Gen 2 2-series for comparison purposes between "like" machines? I'm going to start another thread on that subject....Gen 2 2032R & 2038R Actual Blade Height vs Deck Height Setting
