Hello, Im new here but have seen alot of great information searching the web here. I just purchased a 2003 Exmark lazer Z with a 60" Ultracut deck. The mower is a fixer upper. I have it torn apart right now. im going to paint it this weekend. I was looking at lots of mowers prior to buying this one. But i am in the process of building a house so i chose to try and keep the budget down. I was wondering what you guys might think About Modifying the deck. I was thinking of trying to slope the front of it and change the front baffle to resemble more like a " scag Velocity " or Ferris icd " deck. im pretty good at fabrication. and was wondering if you guys thought the mod. might be worth it or not.
