How much larger is the chute opening on that one than on the demo I had if you know? That lawn looks great.

If you see them side by side you can tell the difference in chute openings, and the new version has a rubber iso mount stand platform. It also has a fuel gauge whereas the version I demo'd last week didn't. I'm just not sure how much difference there is bewteen the two versions in the size of their chute openings since I didn't get to see them side by side.

The deck was improved for the new Pro-Stance and should be on all machines already.

Ridin' is correct. The updated version will have the rubber isolated platform, fuel gauge and bigger deck lift pedal. I'm pretty sure if you bought one this is what you would get now.

But I will be 100% honest, I don't know if you can still buy the non-updated version if dealers have them???

Gravely please chime in if you read this...

The older version was all my dealer had. He said that the new ones were coming, but not there yet. It didn't sound like he would even have them this fall since it's so late in the year. The older version one I used was fresh from the crate, and IIRC, he still has some of those left.

Thanks, looks like there is still some left at dealers then.

I should have stated that I'm looking at a 61" Pro-Walk walkbehind. Any clue if these have the updated decks?

Thanks,
Tim

Im also very interested in the Pro-Walk. I don't know much about them and probably will not get a chance to demo one this year. I do know the deck is similar but not the same as the Pro-Stance. If you try one PLEASE let me know what you think. The z controls look really nice!

I agree for the most part, but there are still hills a stand on will not do here in NH. I can mow some hills with a walk behind that I can hardly walk on!
