Well, the new 66" triton did alright today, mainly cut weeds and some annual rye.
If you run the mulch kit be sure to pull front baffles DOWN, or it will blow out bad. Only put 1hr on it so time will tell.

It is the one on the left-

Sweet looking line of mowers you have. Those will knock out some serious grass. :cool2:

Got any more pics?

Cool... I'm hoping for great things from the Triton deck.
Especially mulching capability.

Love the coned anti-scalp wheels.

You might be looking at the muddy water slung up on the tank, it was wet today while trying it out on a couple of propertys.

Tight squeeze on the 72" LOL....

I think the other guy thinks the tank looks dented, probably in post #2.
Probably because he hasn't seen a big one in person and realized the contour in the tank.

More than I care to have to see...

But in that pic I thought maybe somebody had already run it into something and scratched up the side of that tank. But the muddy water stains would explain it too.

I cut some super thick wet annual ryegrass today with no problem, no clumping like my ultracut deck does. BTW-I am running a mulch kit.
So far I love it. It has a whole 8 hours on it so far.

Lovely I see the morons at exmark are still doing that cheap anto scalp wheel set up with support only on one side. Thats the dumbest thing I have ever seen. Other than that the mower looks great!

If you bend an anti scalp wheel bracket you are abusing the heck out of it. I see mowers with 1000 or less hours that looks like someone beat them with a sledge hammer. These are to make money with-not to abuse. I have picked up new customers because the previous LCO decided to pop wheelies and cut donuts in the customers yard or on the driveway with their mower.
As you can see the beefy gussets that attach the anto scalp wheel to the deck - What is there to complain about?

I have that triton deck and I questioned Exmark about why there is a roller only on one side. They immediately answered me back. The offset roller has something to do with the position of the blades on the triton deck.I've owned lots of Exmark products and I wouldn't own any other brand.

So the mulch kit is working pretty good? I'll be getting it on mine also.

That there may just be my next ZTR.

I just need some feedback/demo time on the cut/performance when the Northeastern grasses start to grow in about a month.

I guess you mulch only?

I was hoping to get a picture of the discharge area without the mulch plate installed. Somehow it's adjustable, but I haven't seen a picture showing how this is done.

Have you had a problem with the brackets


Oh god yes. I used an impact gun, lock washers and red lock tite and they still come loose and start floping around. I replaced everything and same problem so I ended up takeing them all off. We have the 48 lazer HP and our lawns are nice and smooth and the deck is easy as pie to raise and lower by hand on the fly so I avoid scalping. Other than that I love our HP!

We are easy on our equipment. We havent bent them. The bolt that holds the wheel in place keeps comeing loose no matter what we do to it.

Yes you do have a very nice looking fleet of some serious cutting machines. Take care of them and they will last a long time!

Reversed the bolts in the front deck wheels it seemed to help. Might be my imagination but worth a try.

I have NEVER had a gauge wheel bolt loosen....On anything.

No locktite needed. Just the original bolts and spiraloc nuts.

Twice a year I unbolt them to grease them, and adjust from fall height to summer height.

You undoubtedly have them too low. As for mslawn, looking at the one pic of your diesel unit, you keep them too low as well.

They are just right. 2nd hole down from top. What you might be seeing is they are wore slap out, those have about 1500hrs on that set, just put new ones on the other day. I have never had one come loose.

Yeah, I was mainly going by their condition.

Sitting on concrete, deck lowered to cutting position, you should be able to get your thumb between wheel and pavement (3/4-1").

Any lower than that and I find myself gouging out dirt on turns and wearing them on curbs and sidewalks.
