I think more companies should do this. It's bad enough we often pay to be guinneapigs, but id do it for free if it helps others.

This is the first stuff I have ever received. It all started on LS. I asked some questions about Gravely mowers and they were the first company to ever reach out to me. They asked me to do some reviews and our relationship grew from there. They allow me to test and review products and provide feedback. My only condition was complete honesty and they were all for it.

My offer applies for all companies but no other company has ever reached out to me...

Hey GMLC did the original X-Factor deck have the same Turbo Baffle? Or is it an addition, or they both have it but is this one the same design? Cheers

Ok thanks. If you get a chance next time you have your camera out, would you mind taking some more pics of the turbo baffle, one from the outside looking into the chute.

I had a brief search on google, couldnt see any of the old decks baffle.

Thanks in advance

Let us know how it does.

Remember, a shiny coat of new paint makes any deck do well in the wet. Let the paint wear off and often times ones impression of things change.
That was my first thought when I saw the picture. When are Mfg's going to clean up the underside of the decks. That one will be a killer trying to scrape it.

Greenology,

These are from my X-Factor 1 deck last year. I don't know if they will help. When I get my mower back with the new deck I will take more pics.

Actually I rarely have to scrape my deck. It self cleans very well and doesn't pack much at all. I hope the new one does the same.
