I definitely can't complain about the customer service I'm getting from them so far.
I was way past the trial period when I found out how much I didn't like the MOD since I bought it in early April of 2012 and the grass wasn't doing a whole lot for more than a month, so I was stuck with it. I paid extra for it, now I am paying extra to fix it. Kinda dumb maybe, but it's a lot cheaper than a new mower right now.

My salesman even drove 2 hrs one way to go get one of them. I can say I am impressed with how they treated me. I used the mowers today on one of my nicer lawns and a trash lawn. I am very satisfied with the QOC and the mower overall. Here are a couple of pics with the substantial improvement of the QOC of the Pro decks over the MOD decks.

This is cut at 3-1/4" mostly St. Augustine with a mix of Centipede.


This is the lawn that my customer of the nice lawn pays me to cut about once a month. the grass was about 6"-12" in height. We cut it down to 3" we only made one pass. No double cutting.
Good deal man the Pro 7 Irons are amazing decks if not the best hard to pick between Xfactor 2's and 7 Iron's but the 7 Iron barely even clogs up ever been mowing in rain and wet grass last 2 days, I had some build up in last yard I just finished though I mowed through the rain the grass was 12 to 18" high I cut it all 1 pass on 2.5"

No clumping at all though, my dealer said they do not carry the mod decks period.

I used the gauge wheel bolt since it is long enough, and a start washer on each side of the angle iron piece to keep it from rotating while in use. It works excellent like that.
Would you mind posting a picture of how you have your striper mounted to the deck wheel mount please sir? I'm not sure what you mean by using a start washer to keep it from rotating. Thanks in advance!

I used a star washer (not start washer), sorry for the confusion from the mistype in my earlier post. This is the only view I have of the end right now. The angle iron is bent downward at a 90 degree angle and has a bolt hole drilled through it to use the gauge wheel bolt.
