Well the combination of the zero turn Woods mower, and more powerful White "Honkey" tractor has effectively halved the time I spend mowing each session. The zero turn isn't that good in the ditch embankments fronting the shop but the tractor does a fine job on them. I've not removed any front weights but with the ground much drier and harder than the earlier spring season, rutting or digging in hasn't been a problem. Third gear in the medium speed is very good running the mower right at 540rpm and the live PTO is great. Plenty of power and dropping to second gear readily allows cutting grass and weeds over three feet tall without bogging the engine at all. Sure sounds nice when the governor asks for more power too.

With a combination of the proper ground, and implement speed, along with sharp blades yields a cut almost of "Golf Course" quality and it very well may be but I don't golf. The cut however is good enough for who it's for.

That hitch on the back of "Hercules" sure is working out well for moving things around the shop to mow also. Glad I made the purchase.

Yes matching the ground speed is crucial for a good cut, you dont cover as much ground in the same time but the job is so much neater 

Glad it's all working out 

The Princess has loved the zero turn Massey Ferguson mower I bought her as a birthday present years ago

Sounds funny I know but she loves mowing the lawn, as she says "I can spend all day doing houseworkand no one notices, spend a few hours mowing the lawn and everyone notices"
