    Question for you pros. I have a Kubota B7800 with a 60" deck (122 hrs). I Have to cut around quite a few fruit trees which is of course a real pain. Neighbor wants to buy my 60" deck for his Kubota. Will the extra 6" on each side help enough to offset the price of the deck. Quoted $3,050 for a new 72". 60" deck is $2,100 so I figure I'll sell my used deck for $1,500 (122 hrs total time).

    The B7800 does time in the garden and other chores so don't have the option of a front deck or zero turn.

    Thanks

    Scott:confused:

    Talk to Wilson Orchards in Iowa City Iowa - They will tell you about mowing around fruit trees. They have 82 acres of apple trees.
