    I have read a couple articles online about the new deck design. Have they actually come out yet at the dealers? Is there any site that has pics of the deck? Thanks.

    I've seen it online and in a magazine. It looks the same on the outside other than some anti-scalp reinforcements. No inside pics... and the articles sucked.

    Here is a better shot of it.
    Looks pretty much the same.

    It also has slight baffle design change

    And yes the outside of the deck looks the same except minor changes on the a-s wheel brackets

    I was told my new side discharge 997 arrives for a demo on friday, on deere's website it says the 997's come out with the 7 iron 11, so I'll have pics to post friday night, and a report.

    yes, owner of the dealership got involved with my saga and has got things happening, he is buying a side discharge model in....if I like it and it doesn't choke up the screen as fast and get hot, I keep it, clean swap.

    Can't ask for more than that!

    Anyway, friday I'll have pics and report for yas all going well.
