I hear alot of post about one deck being built better than others. I have several questions about this. Have you struck an object with the blade hard enough that it actually bent the deck enough that new blades would not line up and cut even? In other words have you hit an object with the blades hard enough to misaligned the deck. Question 2 have you bent a deck by striking an object bad enough that it didn't cut well? I'm not referring to spindles but actually messing up a deck by striking something. If so what brands and describe the problem. Seems like most decks on ZTR's are built plenty heavy unless you struck something at highs speed. Does the cut quality in general go down on a deck as it ages as long as you keep good spindles on it. Thanks, look forward to your reply.
