No problem. Just keep in mind the 100 series is a small frame mower unlike the 200 and 400 series so the mounting may be different. Id hate for you to order a new deck that doesnt fit!

So far I haven't been able to get an answer that makes sense directly from gravely. I think their response is contradicted, at least a bit, by your experience with the new deck. Also, my 100 series currently has the x-factor deck so it seems like it would have similar mounting to the larger framed machines (although this may be a bit of a stretch/assumption on my part). Just thinking that if the larger machines can handle both decks and I know that mine can handle the older version, by similarity I'd expect the new version to fit. Gravely's response has me a bit concerned that my logic isn't so logical, though

My thinking is if your machine currently has the X-Factor it should work. Although Im not sure how long the XF1 has been around and if it has different versions for different machines? I can understand why its a hard question to answer for anyone. Can you post some pics of your current deck mounting? How old is your 100 series?

The xfactor on my 460 I don't think would fit in my 160.

Yup my mounting is different on my 452. So im not sure? My XF1 cut awesome so I wouldnt have changed it on my own. The adjustability on the FX2 is nice though.

Thanks GMLC. I'm having QOC issues with my machine and the only way I seem to be able to get a good cut is by double-cutting. This is on dry grass that is only 4 or 4 1/2" high at time of cutting with the deck set at 3 1/2" and freshly sharpened blades.

Any recommendations on things to check to see if the deck is setup appropriately?

The mounting points on the X-Factor 1 and X-Factor 2 look like they are in the same location based on the pictures in your X-Factor 2 review thread. Guess I'd just like to get a definitive answer from Gravely. The questions I'd like answered are:

1) Is the X-Factor 2 deck compatible with pre-20000 serial number Pro-Turn 100 series mowers?
2) Is the X-Factor 2 deck compatible with any pre-20000 serial number Pro-Turn mowers? If so, which model / serial numbers?

1/4" pitch measured at the blades(1/4" down in the front). Sharp factory blades. My FX1 cut awesome. Plenty of pics in my 452 review. You shouldnt have to double cut. What kind of turf are you cutting?
