Super Z rear discharge deck pictures

Is there anywhere I could go to see some pictures of the rear discharge xr7 decks? I'd like to be able to see even underneath the deck to compare it to the side discharge deck. Or if someone would be kind enough to post some here I'd appreciate it.

Here is a pic of the XR-7 deck (older pic, sorry) with a mulch kit installed.

No, not from Hustler at least, I guess anything is possible with some steel a torch and a mig welder set up.

is there any cut difference between 54 rear discharge and the 60 rear discharge. I myself prefer the cut of 60vs54/52 side discharge deck. I am already planning ahead for next year. Thanks

Safety, nothing being thrown out the side, tall grass / weeds cut faster / requires less HP and of course.. trimming, you can trim on both sides of the deck.

I would have thought that it would pull the engine down a lot with the reversed blade if you closed the deck off. But I am sure someone has tried it... maybe even at hustler.

You would have to un-reverse the blade by going back to the sd belt and not using the extra pulley we use to reverse that spindle.
