I know the flex deck is innovative, and I could really see it being useful to add some size to a mower otherwise used just for small or gated areas. But it's still a little rough around the edges in terms of support and installation for my tastes. Maybe when they develop a bolt on version under license from a mower manufacturer....but not now. It's also a little pricey for what is basically a 18" mower deck. Whole wb mowers with engines, more wheels, frames, transmissions, and bigger decks cost only about $600 more than an installed flex deck. Perhaps as they sell more the price will come down. Does anyone know of any other systems in the pipeline that do similar things but are easier to install, or come as part of the unit? It's a great idea, just needs to be polished up. Retrofitting existing units is a daunting engineering task. They seem to have done it, but I dont' want my mower decks cut and welded on and a proper cut quality relying on it being installed perfectly. I know about the Great Dane and Hustler designs. I want something where I can remove the unit and mow with a "32 to 36" deck and add it when I need a wider cut. Not just a big deck to get through small gates. Some small back yards require a finer touch than a 52" deck provides.
