I wish there was a clear cut , hands down best deck out there but it's like everything else, depends on who you ask,
Ain't THAT the truth!!

I really haven't found any real fuel usage difference on my deck's using high lifts, wavy mulchers, or G6's over the last couple seasons. The fuel use is always about the same. I guess maybe the high lifts take more fuel to turn if your machine came set up for medium lifts (mine came set up for high lifts), but then again, the other blades leave the clippings under the deck slightly longer to get battered/tangled around more by the blades, so fuel use will probably be the same or close for almost any machine

I am going to call around and see if anyone has a set in stock with a 1 1/4' sail and see what happens. Thanks for the info,
Well I guess I'm no help

On mine factory setting my deck discharge is 2 decks wide I remove the spacers and now my discharge is 3 decks wide

What size is your blade length and bolt hole Oregon Rolled lift what you need look at
