    If you are talking about Brad in Iowa, I have been trying to find him for a long time. Does he still make Flex-Decks?

    Yea brad. He said he has some still. He said he tries to only sell to people he can install for because they're complex to install. He's selling one to me because I have all the fabrication tools to set it up.

    Do they still cost around a grand? I always thought that it would be perfect for the orchard. I would like to speak with him. Tell us how you make out kc2006.

    It's an add on mower deck, it adds 18" of deck to your mower. Hooks up almost like a vac unit for a z. Pretty neat set up. He said 1300 shipped.

    It's good for if you have a few big areas and want a larger mower but couldn't use it everywhere. I have 5 properties that are big and a 78" mower will speed things up alot.
