I don't know exactly what your issue with repetitive posting is.
But I will say one thing....
The VX4 deck is 100 times better then the first generation XR-7 in all of your 4 "V" categories.
So, if your coming from a pre-XR-7 or a later (non free-flow-triangle Version 1.0 XR-7), then in certain conditions, they may have been better.
The cut quality far surpasses any cut I've had in many mowers. The discharge windrow in tall grass, and the length of these discharged clippings isn't acceptable to me.
Just to be clear, in last years week long demo, these two issues did not show up....now in heavy spring growth, they are there.
