    So looks like gravely isn’t the only one with Yamaha now. Was at my local husqvarna dealer today and he showed me the new z500x series and they now have the Yamaha. Just thought this was pretty interesting I’m glad to see Yamaha getting on other brands

    that's cool. in that case if i was gonna buy a new mower i would buy a husqvarna. the deck is the same as the 7iron deck. it would be the same thing as having a john deere with a yamaha engine on it.

    Yea I guess they haven’t updated it yet but saw them personally today so I know they exist. And the 2019 husqvarna product booklet has them listed

    yes i'm serious. let me find the pics for you. the husqvarna deck has that little piece in there but you can unbolt it and take it off and they it's exactly the same as the deere deck.

    Nah
    Those aren’t the same

    I can see multiple differences
    I doubt Deere would let someone else use their signature deck

    Bigger spindle size on the Husky, it’s a half inch deeper, the discharge is a tad larger the lip on the leading edge, the re-route on the Hiusky and the tabs on the JD are about the only difference on the 2 decks.
