    I see from the Hustler web site that the flex forks are available for the diesel but I don't see XR-7 deck for it yet. Does that mean that the new rubber chute is also not available yet for replacement on the older decks (72")?

    Yes, Flex Forks are now available for all of our current models of mowers.
    There will be a kit to put the rubber discharge chutes on the previous non XR-7 decks, it should be available soon, I will check on the status of this kit.

    Will the diesel come with a 72" XR7 deck? What is the best way to get a demo for the new diesel?
    Thanks,

    PJ, do you know when the XR-7 will be available with the diesel?

    Also our dealer tells me that the flex forks seem to be too light on the big diesel mowers and cause then to scalp more. Have you heard anything about this?

    Eventually it will get the XR-7 deck.
    I do not have any time frame at this time.
    Call your dealer, if he doesn't have one, he can get one from his regional rep and you can demo one.

    It will get the XR-7 eventually, I do not have any time frame on this.
    As to the Flex Forks, they work great on the diesel and are perfect for it, they are designed for the weight of the mower, that is why there is a separate model Flex Fork for the diesel.

    I am interested as well in the rubber chute kit for the non XR-7 decks. There was a post going on a couple months back, but I have not heard anything yet.
