Has anyone evaluated modifying these decks to 'conform' to the ground?
I've considered hinging it at two points, for 3 sections. The idea is to
scalping high spots, or leaving long grass in small depressions, or at the
of hills that have a fairly sharp transition. (Yes, my lawn has many of
features!). Just a thought so far...
I've also considered putting a spring below the mower deck on the front
castor spindles to smooth out the deck movement on bumpier ground,
and to reduce transmitted forces to the deck and castor mount.
