    We've had these machines in the field for almost a year now. A large number of test machines were placed throughout the country in the hands of large fleet operators. Scalping or the lack of rear anti-scalp rollers hasn't come up as an issue.

    Take a look at the photos above. The deck has been pulled back to within an inch or so of the rear wheels. Because the rear wheels are so close to the deck, I don’t think there is a need for additional rollers. ... I think.

    Am I missing something? Can you think of a situation where they might be benificial?

    Bad Boy is one of the only ones I've ever heard of with that (18 gallon).

    Boy, I hear ya. My thoughts as well. I petitioned for 18+ gallon capacity early in the design phase and lost that battle. As far as I know, Bad Boy is still the "King of Capacity" at 18 gallons. I wanted that crown, especially with today's big blocks. Can't win 'em all. :cry:

    You might be right, but in my experience you can never have too many rollers!

    The underside of the deck looks allot like the 7 Iron deck. As does the back and the 21" blades. I will definitely have to demo one as soon as they are out. Do they offer a bagger for these?

    80" from the back of the engine guard to the face of the front tires.

    The 60" machine is right at 1300 pounds with fuel in the tanks.

    Now that you mention it, I agree. It sure does look like a 7 Iron.

    A bagger will be avialable. We're testing the design right now.
