    That is very well said, and when I have tried to get this across to people many come back with, "well, it's the same engine and has plenty of power for my mower, what difference does it really make." That's beside the point, if you are a dealer, be upfront and honest with your customers.

    My bad, that is supposed to be 31, not 21. I accidentally hit the wrong key.

    puppy-

    all we can do is keep trying to make sure we post the correct information in the hopes that the word will spread and more will know the truth/facts when they go to buy. They don't have to take our word for it either. It is all right there on Kawasaki's site for all to see the explanation and true ratings. To a lesser degree, it is now on Kohler's site too, though you have to really look hard for it since they've chosen to put it at the very end of the specs in smaller print knowing most people will never check into it any further than the specs at the top of the spec page. I expect that once the rating labels they have from the old system are used up, all manu's will start using the true ratings. Then the confusion and questioning by customers will really begin.

    I will get some pics posted of the deck in a few days. I am also curious about what they do for 2014.

    No problem Ridin!
    I trialled a bolt on baffle similar to that, by the looks. I wish I'd taken a pic of it. It didnt work for me and loaded up the deck which caused a lot of "spits."

    It'd be interesting to see how that particular deck worked on your properties Mick (if they are even offered over there). I'd like to see a bunch of underside pics of that deck. I couldn't find any on BD's site, but that doesn't mean they aren't on there. I just suck at finding that type of stuff.

    If that baffle is the same as the one I tried, and Im pretty sure it is, then it didnt work! It lost the free flow thing!
