I demoed this thing today with the 60 in. deck. Man it is great. Hydraulic deck lift, I ran it through some really thick stuff and it never bogged. It cut perfectly, never left a blade standing. Then we ran it on the side of a hill, actually part of a really huge ditch and it never even started to slide, it stuck like a magnet. On flat ground it will mow its @$$ off. The blade engagment is soooo smooth, it has to be the quietest mower I've ever ran. I give it a 10. I can get this mower with the fab deck for $9,800 or so. Good deal eh? We are going up to Kubota Tuesday to see about picking one up. Oh and the dealer is about 10 minutes from my house.
