    MultiForce don’t come w/cutter deck. Designed for snow. Fall/Winter unit only

    Point is like to see the MF blower attach. MultiForce I can use for other stuff. Scag and Hurricane One Trick Pony which is fine if you running it allot in leaf season. Dedicated almost always better tool.

    You just said it was winter only. Now you want to use it for other stuff.

    I have a MultiForce. Bought the bagger attachment and the plow. The bagger is mediocre at best after seeing what a Deere bagger will do. The plow works OK but not great once you get banks built up or until you lose traction. The plow is too far away from the drive wheels.

    The concept is great, but for me it doesn't make sense. I need a mower. And I need a sidewalk unit. The ride on blower gets used all season, it is not just a spring and fall cleanup piece of equipment. And Scag seems to have done a good job at fixing the weak spots of the Hurricane.

    I want a dedicated sidewalk machine. Right now using Tracers w/plows. Too much skipping.

    Blower in Fall on MF would be bonus. Couple guys I talked to here running MultiForce w/plow complain about things MultiForce Snow Only model appears to address.

    But yes. Still better sidewalk units. MF looks like compromises for snow and blower

    You do realize the only difference between the MultiForce 74527 Snow Only and a 74523 is a mower deck and tires?

    They're not even showing the wheel weights which don't help.

    I'm also guessing they haven't upgraded wiring connections either.

    They have a limited application. And it is too limited for me.

    What’s wrong w/plow on your MF. Down pressure?

    Tracer/Plow skips. Have them weighted but hydraulic much much better.

    I already stated the problems above.

    Reading comprehension is a thing.
