    Would you like to see some changes In the design of the older model machines, Like smooth front Casters tires? Or a deck that really mulches good...Maybe Higher vacuum...Weight?...What ever It may be.

    I would have to agree there. I would like to see a 31hp Exmark AS, UltraCut with dual blade setup. And have it be under $8000.

    I do like that mulch on demand that the 7 Iron J.Deere Has.
    It Will be Interesting to see what Exmark does to there Triton deck.

    John, have you used Meg-mos? I would really be interested in your take on them. The opinion on Meg-mos seems to vary greatly on this site depending on who you are talking to and there seem to be more bad than good.

    Yes i have. It all depends on the deck depth and the kind of grass you are cutting. I will say one thing, there great on leaves.
