    This photo is from a friend of mine that is designing a new mower deck design that he made. It has no clipping discharge and mows in wet conditions. What do you think of it.

    Make sure that when you download your pic that it doesn't say that it is too big. All pictures must fit certain size requirements. If it doesn't fit, it won't post.

    I'll give you all some info on how well it cuts and mulches.

    I have used it for several hours on some of my properties.
    It does cut and mulch better in all conditions than my hustler super z 60in with a 25hp Kawasaki. It has a 27 hp Kohler and about a 60 in cut. The unit is of course a ex mark but has his deck design under it.
    I have used it on a lawn that had not been cut in 14 days and was wet from dew early in the morning and it did better than mine while I was side discharging.
    Also used on a every 7 day lawn with dew with no clumping or deck clogging.

    Looks like a Scag deck.
