    I have a John Deere HD45 walkbehind and a Walker MTGHS with a 26hp EFI motor. I have a 48" Ghs deck that I use on it. The Deere is a 14 hp hydro with a 48" deck. I am pretty positive the right hydro pump is going on the unit along with broken spindle housing. Other than that the walkbehind cuts amazing and the motor runs strong. I demoed a 52" mulch deck for the wWalker this weekend. I hated the mulch kit and took it off. I am very pleased with the side discharge. I would like to add the the deck inplace of the walkbehind. Would you recommend this? I do plan on growing next year and maybe adding a Stander. Also, as a small business, I really shouldn't spend $2300 on this deck but it would improve my productivity. Should I spend $1000 or more fixing the Deere or buy the deck for $2300? Please give comments on the 52" mulch deck to. -Will
