The left side edge of the deck on the 160 is straight front to back. On the 460 it arches out toward the back. Maybe it is the same under the deck not really sure yet because I have not had the new machine up in the air yet. Makes me wonder if that has anything to do with gmlc's mower not working well with the stens blades. I will have to throw a set on the 460 and see if the cut quality drops compared to the oem blades.
I found that the stens blades had over a 1/4" less lift. My guess is that was the reason but it is interesting your decks are different yet both 60"!
