Brad here is a freebie for you. Yet another selling point for the Flex-Deck. This is one you don't mention. You can keep the majority of the weight of the machine, your drive tires and sulky or feet way farther away from that potentially dangerous or marshy creek/pond/lake edge with the Flex-Deck!!! Plus it can also be used to stay farther away from any ledge, retaining wall, soft ditch bank, roadway ect... This pic is from our new sponsor Great Dane. Now all you have to do is run out and take your own picture to plug in here and there. I'm tired of seeing the same old pictures anyways. You can repay me later with a HUGE discount!!!!
