Yeah, I know 6in is too tall, we've just hadn't had a chance to mow regularly because of rain and other issues. I'll try to keep on top of it more often. The mower deck was set to the highest setting (3.5"), and it was bogging down in that orchard grass. I think it may have shut down once or twice. I had to take it slow thru that hay.
I think I started at about 1, had to stop because of the rain for an hour or two, and then restarted about 3. Had to take a break after another hour as the heat and humidity was was beating me down. I think I got done about 7. I think the heat really got to me, I could barely function afterwards. I feel OK this morning, but know I still have to mow the front yard today, but am going to wait until later this afternoon.
The tractor just needs to have coolant put in it, and I'll be ready to bush hog the pasture, its prob about 3ft tall now..
