    I'd like to see walkbehinds have VERY quick adjust decks like on riders. A foot pedal would work. It would make it very easy to perform a second cut to spread clippings at a higher lever.

    The "quick-adjust" wb decks out there aren't quick enough.

    Would anyone else like to see this? Come on let's get Exmark to offer this....

    Husqvarna does offer it, a handle to adjust deck height from behind the handlebars.

    I'll have to take a look at Husq.

    Snapper is pretty fast. Turn a crank on each side.

    I've had 2 Snappers with those type decks. Still not nearly fast enough.

    My John Deere is the slowest thing on earth to change.

    So come on Exmark and others -- quick adjust decks with a foot pedal like you see on a rider.

    That would be nice. There is only one problem with that. You want Exmark to produce it? Why Exmark?

    How about a hydraulic lift like a Kubota? Now that would be cool.
