I know that some of you havve the MOD deck. I am considering trading my new (06 w/ 50 hours) 757 for one with the MOD deck. Dealer is offering me a fair price. I think the MOD deck will be useful around parking lots and flower beds as welll as when it is windy. I was also hoping to have the MOD deck instead of a bagger to do leaves with in the fall. Trouble is I talked with a local guy that has a 777 with a MOD and without (7-iron deck not 7-iron II). He said that the MOd deck does not distribute clippings well when it is open and that it causes it to do a lot more double cuts. If he had to do it again, he probably wouldn't. This surprised me because of so many that have said good things about the MOD deck. Does anyone have any input?
