Plastic deck concerns

Looking to buy a new mower after using a Toro for fifteen years but I am concerned about the plastic deck. We have a lot of rocks in our landscaping as well as mature trees that shed branches. Although I try to pick up as much as I can beforehand, it is inevitable that I miss a couple. Has anyone had the plastic deck crack from a rock/twig? Thanks for your help!

I just finished the 4th mowing season with my original 21" non-sp model mower and the deck still looks great. The deck material is quite thick and very strong. I have run over twigs and small branches and the occasional rock and also those gum tree spiky balls with no ill effect to the deck. No need to worry about the deck cracking.
