Why is a fabricated deck so much better than the older stamped type? Have the stamped decks been prone to early failure, rust or falling apart? I'm new to Husqvarna's (2754GLS in 2009), but I have a 30 year old Ariens GT16 that has a stamped deck mower and other the the skids being bent, is in good condition. And I haven't been gentle with it either. I'm just not sure why it makes sense to design a deck that would far outlast the tractor it's mated to. I guess I'm not expecting to get 30 years out of the Husky tractor.I second that...take it back...plus the other machine's decks are not fabricated....so they really suck......make your dealer earn his money
I wouldn't say stamped decks suck...but one of the reasons for buying the LS series Husky is the fabricated deck...I have a stamped deck on my Dixon (same as a Husky deck) and I'm perfectly happy with the quality of cut.I second that...take it back...plus the other machine's decks are not fabricated....so they really suck......make your dealer earn his money
I hope you're not going back to the same dealer that's been jerking you around. Maybe you should consider having them directly replacing your present mower with an identical one. It could be some oddball thing wrong with your first one that won't let it cut level with the bagger.Went through another belt again in 5 hours,and mower deck still cutting on angle when blower unit is on ,if not on and just discharging it works perfect.Had about all i can take going to trade it in on the new YTH22V46XLS with the conventional bagger,no more powerflow thank goodness.Just wondering how good of a cut do you get with a 2 blade deck and do the blades still overlap. THANKS ALOT.
