    who else besides Cub Cadet with the folding deck idea?
    I like the idea but not sure how good it is.
    My first impression, w/o driving the machine - there is gotta a be a drawback somewhere else. Only users would have that experience.

    The only thing I have seen close to that is that Great Dane makes a walkbehind like that. I believe it is called the Gateway. Definatly a unique idea, but don't know how well they would really work/hold up?

    Yeah Great Dane do a 22HP 52" walkbehind known as the Gateway the deck folds to 37" for transport. It works well and because the deck is off set you can trim right up close to water edges and under trees and shurbs.

    Dixie chopper made a 42" model (I think) that the sides of the deck came off to get into gates.
