I believe the 910 with the 48" deck is fine for normal cutting, but it will starrt to lack power if the grass is wet and or thick and there are any hills involved at all.
A lot of guys on here have bought them and replaced the throttle plate with one from a 920 which is the only true difference between those two engines. It's about a $40 part and an hour or so of your time to do. There's a thread in the mechanic & repair forum if you do a search on it there.
Yea, I thought I had read on the JD website that the MOD is only available on the 920. That would be a nice option to have, especially around apartment complexes, but I'd prefer the 26HP option with that feature. It seems most people on here agree that more HP is better while mulching. Thanks for the input.
