It will prevent the blades from hitting each other, it will help. I might have to demo it once it comes out.

I am not crazy about timed blades either. Off set is less problematic and the blades won't hit each other if the belt looses tension, snaps, or one of the blades hits an object.

As long as they don't have the atomic, junky, crappy, crummy horrible blades on they should do real well, especially if they have a true mulch blade and seperate chambers.

I would like to see wider wheels on them.

Plastic wheels?

Or do my eyes deceive me?

They do look like the same polymer wheels they use on the commercial 21".

Same here. Maybe 3" or so. It sure would help with minimizing the wheel ruts that look like crap on a lawn, especially a nice lawn.

Separate chambers really isnt possible with a timed blade setup.

I would have to agree that the engine is going to be lacking power for that. Kawasaki needs to bring back the FC290V for that or something.

I cant really think of much for vertical shaft engines between the normal 21" mower size of like 130-190cc and the next thing up which is probably 340-390cc for the vertical Honda GX engines.

That's funny. Walker makes a 48in 2 blade deck for mulching. Why would this be any different?
