I had a LT155 with one on it, I sold it after a year, not that it was bad or did not mow great. Since the blades are sync, and depending on the hit, I was always creeping around the yard mowing, afraid if I ding the blades and knock them out of sync, it would be a costly repair. And that goes the same for the new cub with the new sync deck.:fing02:

Some guys love them other hate them.They were about the biggest reason for people taking advantage of the 30 day return policy John Deere had.The LX280 is a super nice lawn tractor but you might not like that deck option.
