Have you seen this

Looks pretty cool how you can change the deck width. I wonder how that works with your blades being a fixed size.

All they are doing to make the blades work is sliding the two out side blades back making it over lap more, if that makes sense. All decks have an over lap that's why the middle sticks out. If they didn't have that they couldn't over lap or need to be timed. You make as little or as much over lap as you want

Take a look at how the outer two blades move in relation to the center one. They all move together, with the center one becoming farther forward (in relationship to the outer two) as the outer two move back around behind. The geometry makes it possible to have the deck flexable like that, while maintaining the distance from outer blade tip to center blade tip at a constant dimension.

I think that would be sweet to have on a mower that I would actually use.

I watched the entire video, before I realized it was all electric.

I'm still waiting to see it run on a 28° slope. My angle finder says his slope was only 13 or 14 degrees.

I noticed the same thing. I didn't get out the angle finder, but that for sure was much less than a 28 degree slope.

If you want to see what a 28 degree slope really looks like, ask a builder to show you a 7/12 pitch roof on house somewhere, then ask yourself- "could I drive across that with my mower?"

here is another vid where they talk about it. They could have picked a better mower to compare it to. Check out the anti scalp wheels they are castors.
