OK. So, I'm continuing this thread from last fall. I have read through these posts and a few others on the G6's. I appreciate the advice and experiences of the previous posters from around the U.S. To note, most of the experiences were used with a 4-5ft mower deck. Any one use them with a 6ft deck? I'm guessing they would be similar performance, but the individual blades are a few inches longer ( ~25" ) and so would be increased noise (?), perhaps not if the tip speed is the same as smaller decks. Currently have a JD 72" 7-iron deck (Green) and picked up an older, but with very low hrs, front mower also with a 72" deck (yellow). The 2nd unit is also being used as a light-duty bush-hog -- Emphasis on light-duty part. Reclaiming some unused pastures before they become overgrown. Been doing quite a bit the last few weeks with all the mild weather here. Looking to change to the G-6 on the 7-iron deck.
