They also have tunnel decks, which I know firsthand will cut every bit as good as any deck made, but not when you're dealing with large amounts of thick grass, and taking of several inches at a time at high speed as is common in the spring. They do look interesting though, and I hope they turn out to be another good choice eventually.
Weight is w/o mower deck; agree on tunnel deck. I do not see in that brochure why that mower can not be used commercially, very similar to the Kubotas, seems very heavy duty, but I have never seen one in person.
