    anyone with experience running the 52-in deck with the flip-up wing? I looked at one at my dealer. Fixed deck. Looks interesting, deck folds up to go through 36-in gate.
    Looks good in dealership. Any long term users out there? Pros and Cons of the unit?

    I think I'm the only person on the site with a Gateway. I have used it for two seasons. Over 500 hours so far.
    High productivity from a mower that will fit through a narrow gate.
    Built very well.
    Easy to operate and maintain.
    Enabled me to sell two mowers 36 wb and 48wb.
    Great trim side ability.
    At first it was a little odd to use...18 inches of the deck out the left side.
    Does not work well on hills
    Stripping looks odd, but for some this isn't an issue.
    I would buy another.
