    I had to take what the rep was allowed to offer, my choice to really see how much guts the 37 Kawi has would have been the 72".

    Are you having spindle problems? What would be the benefit to install the newer style spindle?

    I don't think that they would work. But I'm not totally sure.

    They are a more robust spindle with a thicker shaft and bottom bearing closer to the plane of cut.

    if you buy one demo a 72, I will never buy another 60 and will go from a 48-52 skip 60 and just go 72. Your 66 should be 15% faster than a 60 and a 72 15% faster than your 66.

    The stock spindle on a XR7 Super is a 3/4 inches the new one is 1 inch. The 3/4 are fine until you hit something solid but thet are a 5 minute job to replace and cheap so they are still pretty good. I do alot of industrial jobs so I need heavy duty spindles.

    According the my 2012 Hustler catalog, the new spindle shafts are 1.5". That's a seriously stout spindle shaft.

    Well now, in this Hustler video (the little thumbnail on the right in the group of four to the left), the guy says they are 1.25", not 1.5". It's at the 4:38 mark where he starts talking about the new spindle-
