    I know you can get virtually any model in a side discharge, but are they as good as the B and Super B in discharging?

    I run two 62" w 25 & 26hp and 56" 54" 48" w 20 & 25hp. Haven't used B models but think 62" decks are comparable to 60"super B " belt drive deeper deck and discharge tunnel" However I love my smaller gear drive decks blade speed seems a little slower but the're lighter fit on trailer better. I mow bermuda bahai & st aug in s. fl

    the Super B has a deeper deck or a shallower deck than the others?

    60" B deck & 62" & 52" sd decks are deeper & handle tall grass more efficiently at higher ground speeds. I have speed kits on all my Walkers except 16 hp 42" mulcher

    We have used teh 62" SD decks for years on our finest properties with EFI tractors with NO problems!

    How much faster do the speed kits make them? What about if I wanted to have a discharging T series? Is the deep 52" available on this one as well as the 62" (and 74"?)?

    My biggest question is, can you buy the mower set up for discharging at a lower price, or do you have to pay for the bagging system and RD deck and purchase an additional deck and that cargo carrying deal that goes where the big hopper sits? :confused:

    10 -12mph I rarely run them all out. You have to be familiar w property your on & your controls! I mulched a mourning dove last week.You can buy models S, C, D, T w out bagger.I only have one 48" GHS.I use 1 day wk then swap to 62" deck.You can get any size deck but the belt drive decks 52",62" seem to handle faster ground speeds w out clumping.74"deck is gear drive 4 blades I wouldn't use less than 26hp gasser w the 74". Hope this helps.Got to get back to work took a break its 90 degrees 90% humidity.
