    This reinforcing ring was added a few years back to the trim side of the 52" and up decks. I feel that you wouldn't notice the added 1/2" as the new decks are deeper and produce more suction to suck that 1/2" of grass in to be cut.

    I'd rather have the "extra" protection of the ring then chance denting the skirt and getting a blade or two more grass cut around a post.

    Don't let this improvement hinder your future purchase. There are quite a few other "improvements" since your 1996! :D

    Thanks for the post. The reason we went with the trim-side wear guard was because the trim side of the deck takes a lot of abuse when you are mowing around trees, concrete walls, etc. . . This will keep you a little farther away from the object you are trimming around, so I see your point. I guess if all guys were as careful as you when trimming around stuff with their Lazers, we wouldn't need the trim side wear guard. ;)

    Thanks again for your suggestion,
