It does the same thing and stripes the grass.
Because then they couldn't sell it to you for $650. And the new ones don't mount on the back of the deck from what I understand.

According to what I read you can get a wide single center roller for the center, or one anti-scalp wheel for each side of the deck, or all three, which means you could have the wide center roller plus two outside wheels, which may work better with this 72" deck, what are your thoughts?

Has anyone tried the different baffle settings to see how the deck performs? They come from the factory with the baffle located in the "B" hole setting. I am getting some blowout which I've never seen with any Super Z I've owned previously, and thought that maybe by dropping down to the "A" hole setting I could possibly eliminate this problem, it's not terrible, but I would like to prevent it entirely.

The drawing I saw in the parts manual was lacking for clear information on the 72" deck, is there a clearer look anywhere else?

Now I remember. It was on the videos on their site. The animated drawing one IIRC. They show a rotating shot where they pan under the deck.

I just went through the videos on Hustler's site, and I didn't see the optional gauge wheels anywhere in any of them.

However, if you go to this link and view the video for the Hustler SZ in animated form (which is right below the large video of the rear discharge deck to the left of the screen, third video from the left), you can see at the 3:03 mark, the center anti scalp wheel

Puppy I promise I haven't forgotten your pics. I haven't gotten home til after dark the last 3 days but I will get them tomorrow when I sharpen blades. The scalp wheels aren't wide they are all three the same size just one kit has one that goes in the center, the other has 2 wheels the same size, the pics will explain better. For the front baffle, I lowered mine for a few days and didn't cut as good as in B hole. It laid the grass over especially crabgrass stems where the wall was now lower than the blades tips. I haven't tried raising it, I'm afraid that will loose too much suction.

If you have the VX4 deck the only problem I have with the dual rear wheel setup is they are not adjustable. They are in one position only.

If you get the center roller only there is two mounting holes that match the two positions of the three front rollers.

Thanks, I can now see there are no outside anti-scalp wheels for the sides of the deck, you can get one, two, or three, which are all located in the center. These are all wheels according to the picture, no roller that I saw, is this what you saw as well? I consider a roller to be longer than a normal anti-scalp wheel.

I am enclosing the three part video series, some may have seen these, but a few such as myself may not.
