    Find your thread I want to see what you came up with I love doing custom mods, I opted out of the Deere OCDC it is a very nice well built OCDC cover but dang man $700 lol

    But I can admit it is built 2x more heavy duty than any OCDC I see on the web

    I actually posted a link to the thread last night, but for some reason it's gone today.:confused:

    I know it posted too, because I came back and made sure a few minutes after I put it here.

    Talked to my dealer this morning. He's ordering me two Z930r's with 60" Pro decks. I have been using a Z797A with a 60" pro deck and a Z920R with a 54" pro deck. The 60" pro deck lays down a better cut than the 54" for some reason. It's not a lot of difference but the 60" does cut and disperse clippings better.

    It's not surprising to me. I have mentioned this several times in the past- the discharge chute on the 60" deck (both Pro and MOD) is a LOT larger than it is on the 48" & 54" decks, and in thick or wet grass, it makes a big difference in overall QOC

    I cut the angle iron at each end right up the corner, and also cut off one side of the angle so that it was a flat piece that I bent for the 90. I left the flat a bit longer than I thought I would really need and then drilled a hole into each end on the flat that allowed the rubber to just touch the ground when the deck is in the mowing position at the height I cut at. I used the gauge wheel bolt since it is long enough, and a start washer on each side of the angle iron piece to keep it from rotating while in use. It works excellent like that.

    If you mean in the center at the rear, no. Only the std deck does. If I end up switching deck shells, i will remove the two rear wheels in the center. They are not needed, even on the 60" width.
