    Thanks - I sold our 757 a while back and forgot about those blades.

    Looks like they are 25 long by 3 wide - what a shame. Spacers should do the trick though. I remember being frustrated that the scag blades wouldn't fit the Deere.

    This could be totally true. But to not take a few minutes to try the baffles off and in different positions is strange to say the least...or even comparing the cut on the lawn I see his super z cut pics on.

    True and the top position is worst. I think I remember him saying he had back issues at one point so maybe that's what is stopping him from doing it.

    If thats the case Im a jerk and apologize. Its not worth getting hurt over. But still would like to see a fair comparision on a lawn thats halfway decent.

    Definitely for what Puppy does and his style mowing the HD 72 is the best mower on the market I think by far but most do not need that much mower, even Mchippy misses the smaller package for more compact jobs.

    If you get a Super HD the 72 is the one to get other than that for most a different style 60 would probably be better?

    What's stopping me from removing the baffle is I'm not sure Gravely wants me taking a new mower and making physical changes to their machine, and this is the reason I have the rep looking into the situation. He is supposedly calling me back, and I would think maybe today.

    I can't believe this weather, it was again raining this morning at 7:00 am, and when I looked at the radar there appeared to be no rain within 100 miles except for one small area, and this was over and around me.

    I talked with a gentleman yesterday that had been running his own lawn business for 18 yrs., and he preferred his 2012 60" Huslter Super Z over all other mowers, and he had an Exmark and Scag on his trailer, so what this means is depending on what part of the country you mow in has bearing on which mower one may prefer.

    One thing is for sure that deck skip is real on the 60, we saw it with our own 2 eyes here on Candid Camera.
