I have a 97 345 with the 18hp in it. Have always wanted a 54" deck (have the 48) to get the lawn cut faster. Might have found one I can trade up to get.

In the past I have also run my powerflow bagger, but this year due to the dry conditions(but primarily due to the fact my buddy that would take the clippings for his animals is no longer living near by) I have not been bagging.

Is the 54 about all the engine can handle? Will the powerflow push it over the edge? I like to cut at a pretty good pace.

Mike my first new Deere was a LX288 with 17hp twin Kawasaki in it. I had the dealer put a 54" deck on it right at new and that tractor never ran out of power. When you get in thicker and a bit taller grass, you will have to slow down but this time of year it wont be a problem at all.
