Ultracut 3 or Ultracut 4

Other than what exmark wrote in their catalog, has anybody ran 3 series vs. 4 series, and what advantages either offered?

The series 3 decks are the old hp units and the series 4 are the "true" ultracuts. Series 3 is used in the s series wb's and probably the lower end riders. Series 4 is used on x series wbs, Vantages and most Lazers.

One person's opinion: the series 4 decks are much better.

No, the Triton was known by that name only.

The HP series of wb's and riders is similar to the s series of today.

Some like one some like the other. The hp is 5" deep the ultracuts are 5.5. There are probably some other differences as well. Some hps decks will throw grass three passes wide. My ultracut decks are closer to 2 passes.
