Is there any more pics of it? Something looks a little different with that deck.

Wouldn't surprise me if Hustler is doing a little bit of deck testing with Big Dog. In fact I would think its a great idea...

Well I really cant tell on my computer but in that pic it looks like the deck has some sort of baffling in the front where mine does not.

The best I can tell after blowing the pic up i think it is just like mine. i will have to wait till I get home in the morning to be able to watch the videos that have been posted. I will also get some pics of underneath my deck and post them tomorrow afternoon.

Well, I noticed a while back that the center anti scalp wheel looks exactly like the vx4 on the hustler, but the outside two resemble the xr7 anti scalps. I'm guessing they mixed the best attributes from both decks together, this is just an accusation though of course. In my opinion it needs to be done. They need to go away from trying to build the fastest machine on earth and focus on making a machine that has a deck that is completely versatile like scag/John Deere.

Just looked that that vid again, its not the same as I tried but I dont know what the piece is where the arrow is on the right, in the pic. The one I triad the baffle came all the way out to the side of the deck closing the chute width.
Dunno whats going on with this one now!

And yep, I agree Curb!

I'm as excited as you guys about a possible fix for our decks, but is there any chance that it's just the angle of the camera shot there on the right side? It looks to me like just the front skirt of the deck, but I dunno.
