    Looks pretty cool to me.

    28 HP EFI Kohler, 60" deck, new deck design with user adjustable flow baffles...........

    I'm going to demo one here soon.

    The adjustable baffle thing IS kind of a neat idea, especially if it works like it is supposed to. Too bad it still on a junk stamped deck, though.

    The one that I saw is on a welded deck!

    The 500 series we looked at had a very well built deck and had real rugged welds!

    The new Toro Turbo Force deck is also much deeper than the old SFS deck at 5.5" which is equivilent to eXmark's Ultra Cut Deck.

    Hopefully this deck will filter down through the entire Toro product line. Purely speculative but this deck w/ the adjustable flow baffles, enlarged tunnel, & added depth may actually have an edge on eXmark decks.
