    They both cut better than the old "Classic" decks, so your better than it could be. On a 48", I think your splitting hairs as to which is better. The Velocity is a LONG deck and takes all compactness out of a WB IMO.

    The second generation classics and the third (curved trimside) generation are VERY compact and short in length. But, they trade that for a so/so cut.

    the velocity offers a larger discharge chute giving a better cut on tall/wet turf with out clumping, and the baffle design is different. the advantage was good in its day, but better in now available..btw scag is putting the velocity on 95% of the machines now
