Hay the laztec uses a Back wards deck like the old Hustler 251K and 260.It left a funky stripe but i never seen the laztec cut????? This is interesting to say the least.

They use 3 seperate decks and each flex indepently with the contour of the terrain.

Looks like a nice machine. I guarentee its got one heck of a price tag. Where I work we have a 84" articualtor with a 34 hp kubota diesel on it and it cost around $25,600.

I wish I could tell you because i've never used it. I work for a guy that has a 1500 acre farm with his own private 90 acre 9 hole golf coarse. me and my dad work on the farm so all we do is mow grass with ztr's and keep the feilds mowed with tractors and bushogs. He decided to get out of the cattle business so all we do is bale hay and keep the fields mowed slick. We only have to take care of about 700 acres of that because he leased out the rest. Getting back to your question, they use the articulator on the gold coarse and we don't work in that area. There are other guys that handle that. I have heard all good things about the machine though except the frame has broke twice and has had to be welded back together. Other than that its a great looking machine. I hope to get to drive it one day.

No, actually this model happens to be very reasonably priced.

It doesn't have the 3rd front wheel like the big one I saw though.

Now, is it just me or does the engine appear to be mounted very high?

I bought there deck about 12 years ago for a deere out front and liked it. I sold the mower a year later, i think the new owner still has it.

You are correct. This let them slide the deck back more. Its not a articulating deck. Its backwards.

Yeah, I know about the deck. Shane and I talked at length about this recently. Because as you know I have been tinkering with deck design myself and experienced a rather shocking development by running my design backwards like Lastec. I never thought of raising the engine to achieve a more compact fit.

Anyways, thanks for the picture and here is one I find more flattering of the design... it's good side if you will.....

What Benefit is there to the Inverted Center Deck Chamber ?!?!?

I'm wondering about the side hill ability with the motor (center of gravity) sitting so high. The right side is definately it's best side.

The gas in the tanks sit very low so doesn't the seat.

Not sure but I am guessing you would pass less grass left to right across the front of the deck while mulching, so better mulching? Come on Envy share with us.

Well for one it takes a bit less power to run.

Another is have you ever noticed any positive differences while running your current machine in reverse?
Think about it.....

It sucks leaves in not out..... very good thing when your mulching, but what happens to the quality of cut?

They Definately don't discharge as Well in Reverse. That inverted Chamber would make for Very Poor Discharge IMO....& since the pic Shows a Big Discharge Deflector there's No Mulch Kit...I'm Baffled ?!?!?!

I honestly don't think it matters ...it will still discharge to one side,provided the blades are spinning in that direction.... really think about it.....
