    I run my X758 with the 60HC/Mulch kit. Using the factory blades sucks a pretty big one. Buy a set of the gator blades. The only time I ever start wishing for a little more is when they start to dull. I mow/mulch everything. Twigs, sticks, branches, rocks, ratchet straps, bungee chords, kids toys, dog toys. On average I cut about 3-4 inches of grass off. Around 30 hours of mowing in between sharpening. Once there's nothing to hit after spring though, they stay sharp a while.

    I think he runs a single G6 now as the deck is designed. I think he wants finer mulching? Regardless his pastures don't get much for sticks and twigs since the tree line isn't close, he does have that luxury. For my personal property the first half a dozen passes in the spring take care of all that crap that falls over the winter. By summer its pulverized. I need to do a little reading about sharpening those G6 blades as I've never sharpened a blade before.

    I sharpen mine just line any other blade for the most part. Roughly 5 light passes on the top side with a bench grinder. 1 pass on the bottom side for clean up. Then start balancing them.

    The chute plug has that little split that it does and it lacks any through bolts so that does certainly make sense. I understand they used a thicker gauge steel so they didn't need to put through bolts everywhere but when you're spinning at that speed I'm sure there is still some deflection of that steel. I just leveled the deck last week and it is absolutely sitting on all the lift points, prior to leveling one of the linkages wasn't doing anything. I can definitely pop some more grease in the anti scalp wheel shafts.

    I was extremely impressed with how fine it cut. When I drove up one my driveway only a little grass came out and what did was in fine slivers of grass that had balled up.
    This is what I had and used. It is a metal lined trim for protecting edges.Not the cleanest but stopped all rattling. The mower seems very quiet now, more so than side discharge and definitely quieter than bagging.
    Would you happen to have a clearer picture? I was thinking about using a aeroquip hose like they use for high pressure lines that have AN fittings on the end. Rip a piece and pump some black gasket maker in it.

    Check McMaster Carr and look at edge trim. Works great.

    Thanks man. I found the heavy duty one with the metal reinforcement on Mcmasters website. Sure enough Amazon carries it too.

    I wired in my battery tender cable to the battery and routed it over near the starter for easy access. Good to keep the battery charged and ready to go for winter time operation.

    Change the transmission fluid and filter.

    While I had it off also cleaned under the deck and sharpen the blades.

    Took the mower deck off yesterday in preparation for today's rock harvest. While it was off I changed the gear box oil just for the heck of it.

    Today's rock harvest turned out to be very fruitful just as expected. The yellow JD came down to participate and get some of the larger bits out of the ground. Then it was time to put some hours on my x7 and the box blade.

    What a bumper harvest we had and there's still plenty of rocks left in the ground for another day.
