Dude, now thats a good looking machine. I always found the "deck" a boring tool to use. Now if you was to find a pair of back wings, you have the coolest ever EK10.

Very nice EK10 bolens collector. I really like that reel mower, you would think that kind of set up would work better than the belly deck? Looks like it cuts real nice also. :)

if this was 42inchs like the moweing deck is i would use it all the time. the cut is so nice but at only 30inchs it takes a while when i mow 4 acres a week. compaired to the GK with the 72in deck lol. i got a reel mower for the 1050 to im goin to pick it up when i get back from vacation along with a few other suprises. im bring home a truck load

I did try out the weight on the new EK I got and when the deck is on it makes the steering alot easier.
The blade will probably never see any real work, as that will go on my restored EK to take to shows
