I bought a new one in January and have finally been able to put a few hrs on it now. I love the versitility and it does most things great. The one thing I am disappointed about is that Rich does not make baffles for the deck. I have a Trac Vac 655 Pro on order for it and am excited to see how that performs as well. Question... what kind of blades are you guys running on yours? I have been running gators but have been told I should switch back to the high lift for a better cut and better stripe.

I have run both the stock blades and the gator G6. I get a lot of blow out when I use the gator blades. Haven't really noticed to much difference in cut quality other then the gators will chop the clippings finer in heavy grass.

The video mentioned I believe demo'd the 48 inch brush mower with rear discharge..not meant to be a finish mower. I have done some investigating and am impressed by this distributor...
Very knowledgeable and offers quite a variety of engine options (even more than shown on the factory website).
