I knew of the other attachments, like dethatcher, blower, plow and all that fun stuff, I just didn't know decks were interchangable. Can the diesel handle a 74" cut in comparsion to the 56"?

Yeah, I would assume it can handle it.

I'm all about setting myself apart, but unless these are high end homes, I can't fathom dropping 14k on a mower. Your cutting St Aug, correct? I have used 3 different brands that give St Aug an excellent cut and none of them are even close to 14k. The only way I would contemplate a walker would be as a sub for cutting zoysia and hybrid Bermuda instead of using a reel, but since the reel costs way less and a rotary can't match the cut I still wouldnt buy one.

The 52" deck is the GHS, the 64" & 74" decks are side discharge. The 20hp Kubota diesel could handle them fine.

Btw the brands are ferris(same mower as you), wright, and toro. I've also seen hustler leave a nice cut too. I'm just saying, I would rather put that money towards something else. Plus, the walker will cost you a lot more if you finance vs the scag at 4 years 0%...
