The only thing that I'm hung up on is the MOD. That would be so nice for the properties I mow but it's also just one more thing to break. I know that the 7 iron lays down a nice cut. I'll demo both this spring so I guess it's just gonna come down to personal preference. Let's see how the improved x factor does! Wish didn't have to wait 2 months! Thanks for the info

The MOD is pretty simple in design. Not much to break really, and anything that might could be fixed really quickly. I have the MOD on my 950. Set up correctly with the rught pitch to the deck, blades etc., it lays down one heck of a nice cut.

The Gravely's cut excellently as well.

Hey, it sounds like Gravely listened to me when I said they should give you the new deck to try on your machine. IMO it's the best way to get a fair comparison between the two decks.
