So I demoed a wright stander with 48" RH model, I had the company representative with me so I had a ton of questions. One was what was the deck depth? he told me that all but the new ZK have a 4"or 4 1\2" depth, This is kinda small don't you think. When compared to exmark, great dane, john deer they all have a minimum of 5"+ inch deck depth. So is this deck just desighted better with less steal, or is not up to standers with other manufacers? If you have one of thees mowers and you cut southern grasses tell me just how good it cuts. Im looking to mulch with mine. p.s, John G, you where right about the tires being to small, you really have to be careful not to rut, But that mower sher was glued the ground.
