    Don,

    Yes I would agree the 7-iron is in between the 60's on the older units and the 62C. In my experience the older 60 inch units are very nice cutting decks. The couple I have had always impressed me with their cut quality. I think the biggest issues with those decks now if just age...... I would love a 430 with 60" deck for around the house. I do think between the two decks (7-iron and 62C) the 62C is a big step down. Not that its a bad deck. Its a nice cutting deck. But when it comes to capacity and build the 7-Iron will will every time in my book. One of the things I could not catch on film is just the structure difference between the two. It is very striking and apparent in person. I think if you put a 62C up against a 60" from the 445 you would find the same thing. Yes, 7-iron for the 7 gauge steel.

    Glad you got some info out of the video!

    Hi, I also have a 42" Hydro tiller which I purchased last fall but too late to get it dirty. Ths thing that has bugged me all winter is tractor, a X475, 47" wide. I just looked at Tractor data lists your 445 as being 48" wide, so I think you would be a good person to ask about the tiller being narrower than the tractor. We have a 30" on a 216 (41.5" wide) which is offset to one side so you dont leave any tire tracks. Is it possible to offset the tiller on a 3PH? I have a Rugg Cat 1 Hitch. Also purchased new as the tiller was a Cat 1 and I had a Cat 0 so I thought I'd be better off with a Cat 1 Bill Reugg took my money and helped me out. :-) Sold the Cat 0 on ebay
