    I bought a new XR 7 Super but now I am looking at another Hustler that has the old style Hustler deck. Who has compared both on bahai and what is the cut difference. THANKS!!!

    The XR-7 as adjustable for these grass types, you can put a set of spacers in it to lower the blades in the deck to get them 1 inch below the front of the deck, also you move the front baffles down when you do this.
    I doubt you will find a better cutting deck in these conditions.

    How does the old deck cut bahai TALL compared to the XR7, I love the XR 7 and I am looking at a Hustler with the old style deck how much better is the XR 7 about leaving stingers compared to old deck.

    Thankyou for your quick responce and by the way the new Scag velocity deck is supposed to be better in this situation?

    The old deck can have spacers added to it and the Fusion blades and the discharge opening enlarged, it does good, but not as good as the XR-7.
    As far as the Scag Velocity deck, you would have to demo it to make that comparison.
