    No - The Clippings go behide the Auxillary deck - I have a new discharge chute for the main deck, but do not have it on yet.

    Thanks, Brad

    Looks like someone had to much time on there hands. a 12 foot gang mower would work much better.

    Can you trailer it?
    Jim you have the ability to design something that people need.
    Use the tractor as a power unit and for it's deck then add a 20 hp motor that hangs onto the back of the tractor. It would drive a hydraulic pump that would power two 48" bat wing decks that are driven by pumps not belts. Much easier design and fewer operating problems.

    Thats just too cool! I know what kind of mower the wing deck's gas tank came from too! A crank deck JD w/b with the yellow floating deck right? Looks just like the tank on my mower. Thats a cool idea, glad it works good. Send us some pictures when the grass gets green and growin' ok? Can't wait.
    That is sure sweet.....
    Good luck in '03,
