First off, Congrats on the new mower!!!ahartzell said:I know I'm a weenie compared to you guys who mow at 0.3" lol
Same place I got mine from. Taylor was good to work with and shipping via freight was quick, and I've been nothing but pleased with the overall condition of mine. Congrats on the new mower!ahartzell said:Bought from Williamson turf via turfnet.
I don't SEE any pooling water...but I'm pretty sure the soil is soggy. I'm just used to a rotary mower: you try to mow even with dew on the grass and the mower will bog down, you'll rip up the grass/soil, and it's a headache and mess.dfw_pilot said:1/2 inch of pooling water is too much rain. Otherwise, get after it.
The smoothing aspect definitely crossed my mind (because I need to do a leveling project)...I'm just hesitant because I'm normally the type that's impatient and then regrets it. I can see myself going out with a new greens mower and coming back in with a mud pit instead of a lawn...but it's going to rain this afternoon, some tomorrow, then i'm working Thursday, then I'm out of town for a week or so...So I really want to get the first cut/scalp in before I leave so it can heal and green up while I can't see it :lol:dfw_pilot said:I just got a 1/2 inch of rain last night, and I was mowing at 0800. I haven't leveled my lawn, and the wet/soggy lawn allows the bumps to be smoothed out by the heavy roller. The rollers glide right over mud, too. A greens mower is a new league over a rotary.
