    Exmark, why don't you redesign your deck rollers so they won't
    dig up the unlevel lawns when turning? Make a smaller version
    caster wheels and put them on the decks. I do believe Ferris make them for their decks.
    I do really like my 60" 26 EFI. How does the 72" w/26 EFI
    perform?
    Do Kohler have engine manual on the 26 EFI?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    I have often thought the same thing. Castors would be great! The ones on there are fine until you set them to the specified setting.

    Bob,

    Thanks for the post. A few years ago there were several manufacturers using the "caster" or "pivoting" type anti-scalp rollers. Most have gone away from the idea due to performance concerns.

    We have discussed a few different designs but all are still in the concept stage.

    Thanks again for the suggestion.

    Terry
