    Wondering how there holding up? New deck Hydro system? Look impressive on paper. Any real world users?

    I have a whooping 20hrs on mine so far, but they havent been easy hours.
    Hydros are awesome, deck gets long damp grass out but unsure of clipping dispersal as have only cut one place with "normal" length dry grass. Seemed to work well though.
    The 37 uses a lot of fuel but can get through heavy growth quickly.
    I have flex fork and the juries still out on them. They can bounce, cause some scalping and terracing on slopes. They are optional though!
    Hate the fuel tank, the ROPS is unusable (hinge is too high and juts out too far.)

    But the machine drives awesome, seems to cut well all things considered at the moment here.
    Photos. ("week later" is normal length grass, lots of previous weeks clippings on top, but few clumps) There is a vid of that job as well.

    Once it dries out properly I'll get a better idea of cut. Had storms last 2 days so its been a bit of a nightmare.
    My daughter took these photos Sunday. They had to drive straight into it!

    My daughter doesnt get chased by storms, she runs head long into them! haaa

    LOL, that's what the show Stormchasers is all about- several guys chasing down severe storms, then running headlong into them to film them. She'd be a natural.:laugh:

    No problem going up/down, its across the slope they terrace. But, I dont know if normal forks do that as well. I would guess, not so much.
