    Is it possible to swap mowing deck for a larger one? just curious. I may be interested if I could buy it and put a 60" on it. (interchangeable not a complete hack/weld job). Any info is appreciated. THanks!

    Usually way more cost than buying it already configured. The 60" frame is wider so now you would be starting a nightmare project. That is a great price for a great mower. Replacing 3-4 with Evos this next season.

    I'm fairly certain that the above poster is correct. The way the Evo is built would be very difficult to swap it with a larger deck. Plus with a 60" deck the Evo would lose some of it nimble-ness that it was designed for.

    I honestly have no idea, This weighs in at about 1000 pounds. Maybe some other members can chime in?

    If you are patient I bet you could get it there for $500 using uship.com

    Would you consider $3,000? I would be driving from western Indiana so I will easily have $400 in gas.

    Would you consider meeting part way? Maybe Syracuse or Rochester?

    I sent you a message regarding travel. I really can't, my trailer is mid rebuild and I wouldn't feel comfortable taking it on the open road. I would normaly as I love a good road trip. I did meet you on price somewhat for driving out here.

    Thanks,
    Mike Lane
