Even my dealer complains about it.
I agree there seems to be some bad info / specs data linked to the wrong mowers.

On the left, Under features and specs' there is a bullet list... under the 3 bullet... is a see all features link. Click it and it shows a MOD deck for a 60"

Yea, the specs are anything but clear LOL. The 950, and 960 can both be had with the 60" std deck, the 60" MOD deck, or the 72" std deck, but it'd be awfully hard to tell from that spec sheet.

The 970 can only be had with the 72" non MOD deck.

I have not even taken the time to figure out the difference between the various tractors with the same size decks.

Which G3 did you get? Are you still happy with your choice?

Thanks (Looking for feedback on the Toro)

Here is a righthand side view of mine. You can see the lever sticking up above the chute. In the view from the front you might be able to see the little decal on the face of the step I was talking about-

OP bought the Toro which will be a good machine. Best cuts I have seen come from Deere and Scag tho.
Toro/Exmark not too far off.
Gravely, eh - lotta guys here run them but probably just cause they are the cheapest priced of the bunch.
