    This is what I was talking about. I just have to bolt a new piece to the deck before each season

    ok. well does the deck still hold up?? when you say soft, is it really easy to bend of you hit something??? also, can you really rank tall grass with it?? or does it clog??

    Ya deck is fine I don't think it would bend in all that easily I don't know why that guide is doing that but I personally don't use this mower all that much to tell about clumping. I do know that one time I had tall grass and irrigation system had just been on and it wasn't exactly clumps but just not a spot free cut

    Turf tracers cut is flawless I had it out a couple times when raining to keep up and it was still clump free, I was amazed after every cut. TT was new in spring so haven't had anything wrong yet... ECS kills my hands when using it for a long time. I can handle it for a little while but not for a long time. The person who runs that mower for me will wear gloves to help keep his hands from getting so beat up during a long day.

    But I do have to say that the ECS does do a great job at protecting you from hurting yourself unlike the handlebars of a ferris. Before I had the TT we had a fixed deck Ferris and when turning once the guy running the mower got his hand in between the handle and a tree cutting him open pretty bad, has a scar to show it. Luckily no broken hand or fingers. That and the ultimate cut are the benefits of the TT. Like I said before, if I were to buy another walkbehind I would be picking up a ferris

    Not, to high jack or nothing but, that ferris in the pic is prolly one of the first crank decks, prolly late late 2006 or 07 ad they didnt weld a little piece of metal on the part of the deck where the rollers are, on all of the older ones we had we just welded a little piece of metal like CFLS did and it fixed the problem, on any of our newer one 2009 and newer they came factory with a little block of metal there and they have yet to wear out. Hope that helps.
