My 1 year old ferris with 509 hours on it has had the deck severely damaged cutting the same terrain the hustler has been cutting for 2.5 years and over 1000 hours. The deck strength has got to be good to last down here its rocky terrain.
If you want to talk about a tough deck and mower you have got to put the Cub Cadet tank into the conversation. That is one over built machine and the design schematics will be found in museums across the world centuries from now.
