I want a 60" deck. My largest property takes me six hours to mow with my 48" lazer hp with 23 kaw. I think I would like to try a new front runner. Here is a few questions. Gas or Diesel? Mid mount or out front? Which is faster? Which cuts better in uneven ground? My dealer is tring to sell me a 60" XS with 31hp. How much better will the new deck design be on the 06 line?
