Mickhippy is a member here. He has a new SZ 37/61" that he is finally getting some seat time on. I'm sure he'll see this, but in the meantime, here is a link to his channel where he has posted some vids-

I have a whooping 20hrs on mine so far, but they havent been easy hours.
Hydros are awesome, deck gets long damp grass out but unsure of clipping dispersal as have only cut one place with "normal" length dry grass. Seemed to work well though.
The 37 uses a lot of fuel but can get through heavy growth quickly.
I have flex fork and the juries still out on them. They can bounce, cause some scalping and terracing on slopes. They are optional though!
Hate the fuel tank, the ROPS is unusable (hinge is too high and juts out too far.)

But the machine drives awesome, seems to cut well all things considered at the moment here.
Photos. ("week later" is normal length grass, lots of previous weeks clippings on top, but few clumps) There is a vid of that job as well.

Once it dries out properly I'll get a better idea of cut. Had storms last 2 days so its been a bit of a nightmare.
My daughter took these photos Sunday. They had to drive straight into it!

LOL, that's what the show Stormchasers is all about- several guys chasing down severe storms, then running headlong into them to film them. She'd be a natural.
