    I think you've been deceived. LOL :laugh:

    See the dude pointing at the front wheel. He's telling the people at the day-bu about the all new Exmark 30in commercial mower and how the wheels are powder coated aluminum wheels with solid rubber tires rolling on ball bearings. I think he mentioned something about how they rolled as smooth as his head.

    Personally, I'd like to see them put small air filled tires on them. It would be less shock on your hands when cutting a rough bumpy lawn. :)

    Took me a few minutes but I was incorrect. You are right that it's not possible.

    Well it looks like side discharge, bag and mulch.. I guess those are the mulch baffle in front of him..

    That side discharge chute looks kind of small, like it would be 70% side discharge and 30% mulching when using it. Seems like it could clog up a little with tall wet grass.

    Interesting side note for you guys....

    While at Husqvarna, I used to work with the uhhhh "follicly challenged" :laugh: guy in the photo. Hi Jeff! :waving:

    He was the Design Engineer responsible for the PZ project. He's a heck of an Engineer and a genuinely good guy. If he's in on the project, it ought to be alright.

    Well that is good news. I would rather get this for some of my smaller yards rather than a 32 inch, so if this succeeds, great.

    I retired my Ferris 36" SD because of this. It had less than 200 hours. I could fix it for around $300 but due to the belt design, it could happen again at any time. I put an electric spreader on the front and that's all it does now. If my other 36" was destroyed or stolen I could put the SD back into service relatively quickly. I wonder how much it would cost me to put the non timed blade 32" deck on it?

    I hope it has reverse or at least reverse asist. That would be one heavy mower to pull back when bagging

    Other then that it looks like a great mower.
