Yes to the freedom deck. It doesn't have a discharge chute at all.

I just had to give you a hard time. Probably not the best thing to do with all the new folks around, they might think I am really pissed off! Just funnin ya SJ!!! Welcome new folks!!Bye

Actually its a new system....there is a little right angled gear box driven off the one blade spindles pulley with a micro V belt that turns another gear box that is of the pitman variety (changes round and round to up and down or back and forth motion) that in turn drives a miniature sickle bar cutter mounted on the bottom of the mowers deck on the left side, and allows up close and personal trimming / edging.:confused:

For some reason or other I am not sure about JD choice in making a deck without a discharge chute. Right now mulching is in but what will be in a few years down the road from now. I could see making a deck thatw ould work both ways as a mulcher or non mulcher, and I wonder just how many folks realize this. I am bound to believe not all grasses or lifestyles of folks cutting grass is suited to mulching. I know for me its probably not, and would really make a crimp in my grass cutting when cutting grasses I normaly only cut every third time or so that I cut my regular grass.

WoW... that has to be one expensive option....Seems like a lot going on to get the motion for the sickle bar.

Well you low life slug!!!! Here I am surfing the JD site thinking I was missing something. I have the edge deck on my 130 but have seen something on the lawnsite about an attachment you can hook on that will give you a bigger cut, and I thought maybe I misread it and it did edging. At least I am at work and not waisting time at home!!!!! Thanks Chip...ya Bama slug!!! You got me!:quiet:

Heck I am not even close to being in that dudes league! At least I don't think so :dazed:

We have a for sale rag that comes out here every Thursday and its sold out by noon as its a very hot item. You can place an ad for free and to buy the rag its about $1.25 Anyway we (myself and some friends when I used to work for a living) put an add in for a 12 speed, 6 wheeled, 19 cylinder with overdrive turbocharged diesel engine powered, mag wheels with slicks and wire spoked front wheels etc etc etc......the list just went on and on and on. We actually got quite a few calls inquiring on it, and some folks just never got it. One fellow even stated he used to have an model just about like the one we were selling! Then again maybe he was trying to turn the tables on us.

Maybe you should go for a patent on that figment. Instead of using the sickle bar you could have a small string trimmer head driven of the spindle. Similar to the way they drive the powerflow fan. Cheaper than a gear box that way :D

Directly from the Deere web site:

"The Edge™ Cutting System

Keep your edge on yardwork. Tall grass doesn't stand a chance.
Uniquely shaped deck provides outstanding grass lift for a superior even cut. Welded deck with completely smooth underside prevents grass buildup, leaving a manicured, clipping-free appearance. A rolled outer edge on mower deck gives you superior strength. Industry-exclusive, dual-stage paint process provides extra protection from rust.


The Edge™ mower decks are available in 38-, 42-, 48-, 54-, and 62-inch cutting widths. All mowers can easily be converted from blowing clippings to mulching or bagging."
