New Cub 48/36

I don't know how this scan will turn out, but here goes, new cub tank for 2005, 23 kohlor, both sides flip up to 35.5"s to get thru 36" gates. Pretty interesting, Some other manufacture makes something similar

That is a great design. I wouldn't be surprised if we soon see a 54 and 60 with the same flip-deck feature. Maybe a 72?? I know most gated yards do not require a larger deck, however, I'm sure they would still sell a bunch. It would also save space on the trailer. Looks like a great idea.

Ya I have no clue on the price, probably out of my price range. I do a gated yard that I wish I could get my 72" in it, but have to settle for a 36" hydo. I don't think the mower is for me, I don't do that many gated yards, but when I do get on a mower I prefer to ride.

Wow, that's awesome! Lots of gates backyards in my area. Would do well here.
And it's cool that they made the wings electrically operated (I assume from operaters seat).

I really like seeing that the manufacturers are working to help make our jobs easier/more efficient. It's exciting to see new stuff coming out each year.

Thanks for sharing that Bernie!

with the way that both sides of the deck flip up I'd be worried about breaking or bending the deck.

this is just an observation from the picture. I'd have to see it in person to be sure.

I probably woud not do something like that myself, but if I had employees I would be worried.
