Ridin its really not the dust that bothers me as much as the extra fuel consumption. Over the course of a mowing season that's alot of extra dollars. I been studying on my current deck and may try a few mods on it this winter. While I'm no fabricator I have a friend that can build just about anything. I wish there was a clear cut , hands down best deck out there but it's like everything else, depends on who you ask,
