Best cutting deck...
I think it would be neat and would lay to rest alot of bickering back in forth about whose "brand" is the best cutting machine if we had some kind of an unbiased test...I mean lets face it the main reason we buy mowers is to cut grass. I really can't think that if a mower has "suspension" or is "priced the lowest" is the top reason why people truly buy a mower.
So how do we have an unbiased test???? Take all your top brands and have them mow a certain section of a particular consistent area.....Then have a group(I mean a big group consisting of homeowners,pros etc..)of people that have no clue what was mowed with what and have them rate each area....There you have it.
I think it would be surprising on the results....You would probably have a bunch of firm believers in their brand jumping ship.
