A friend of mine is looking at the Deere X320 and the Cub Cadet 2000. The cub sales guy is saying that his deck that is shaft driven does not have the hp loss of a belt drive deck?
What he does not say is that his shaft is driven by a belt. But here nor there. Does a belt drive unit take up more hp than a shaft drive unit.
My old 445 was shaft driven but my new Z920 is all belts.
