I see they have that feature on the new sub compact. I've yet to see one of those tractors close up although there are some of them for sale at the local dealer. To me it is a big innovation. Between that and the imatch for 3pt attachments it takes the pain out of switching attachments.

Our mechanics have setup a few of those decks in the shop. All the brackets have to be adjusted pretty precisely or the system does not work. I suspect once owners get ahold of them and bang them around a bit they will be a challenge to keep everything working right.

That's a pretty cool set-up! I wouldn't mind having one of those. Do they come in red? LOL
