    I will ask the guy who cuts my lawn how fast he cuts, and get back to you.

    Maybe I need to take some lessons from you..., I got a new Gravely 60" says it supposed to go up to 7.5 mph, I'm sure it goes faster than I think, but when I am on it, it feel like I could walk faster than this. - I never thought of a gps test. Guess I should download one and see what I'm really getting.

    My ferris with a half ass suspension mowes at 10 mph and is about all you can stand and my dad has one of the higher end models with 4 wheel independent suspension and I think it mowes at 12.5 or around there. It gets your attention still when the ground is rough at all.

    Wonder what the blades were doing at 100mph?
    My zero turn 42" cub cadet runs about 7mph. In turns, it'll destroy the yard quick if it's wet. 1/2 acre.
