    Just got it yesterday. We had a ZD21,(traded it in) but didn't have the pro deck. Need some tips and trick from those of you that have had a chance to use them. Like what height do you cut on, how many spacers on top & bottom on the deck caster wheels, etc. I cut my grass with it today and I like the new deck so far. So when you have time run some information by me.. Thanks Speedy :p

    Speedy, Congrats on your new machine, I just got one myself
    and really like it so far. The pro deck is much beefier. Hope you
    like it as much as I like mine.. LLSturfman

    Is the cut any better with the Pro deck? I am thinking about buying one mainly because of their low interest rates and I like it.

    I cut some grass that was about 6' high yesterday and it seemed to discharge the grass better than my old ZD with the older deck. I think it does a better job of cutting the grass up better before it discharges it also. The real test will be Tuesday on 16 acres we cut at a plant. Large fields and the grass is usually high.

    Hope everyone has a good up coming week..

    Speedy,
    Thanks for the info. I want to get a ZTR and I was looking at the Kubota, Scags, and Exmark but the Kubota financing is dirt cheap right now. So a friend had a ZD18 and I went and tried his and I liked the maching but the cut was not what I wanted but if the pro deck gives the quality cut I am wanting, then I will buy one. Keep us posted and if you have any pics, would like to see them.
