height will cause scalping. Not too mention cutting your lawn that short
will mean it'll dry out quicker.

I had a look at the website and realised what the 3mm
bit means. It means as close as you can get the mower to an edge (say a
fence), the cut will be within 3mm of it. The wheels or deck won't stick out
