All decks are adjustable...therefore all decks are floaters?

A floating deck has the ability to move up & down on it's own while you are mowing, to prevent scalping.

It has nothing to do with adjustablity.

As for the deck on the Turf Tracer, I put a pin (like the pins they use to adjust height) in a BOTTOM hole, so the deck won't float all the way up and get stuck. It's worked for 6 years now, never sprayed anything.

I replaced my 48" Trimstar with a TT. Never looked back. Around here you will see them on most trailers....and for a reason. I found it to not clog up as quick as the Trimstar. It has the best cut of all my mowers (Scag 72" turf tiger, Husqy 36" fixed wb, 52" lazer z). It is so much more nimble and lighter feeling than the Trimstar. Pulls my fat azz well with a sulky. True, the parking brake is a bit of a pain. I never noticed the deck to hang but I will spray it and see if it works better.

No brainer of a buy. If I had to I would buy another one in a second.

Had a 36"/15 and 60"/21? TTHP's and LOVED them! Also had a 36"/15 viking and now have a 52"/17 viking and LOVE them too.

I plan on keeping an all eXmark WB setup. Never had any problems with their machines.

52'' - good size - not too big 4 small places, not too small 4 big; not too heavy to muscle it if needed; i put 17.5'' tires (18touches deck, parkbreak -out), poor man "ocdc"(simple rubber); - perfect : )))

tthp floting deck

Check with exmark and see if you can purchase the front end part to make yours a floating deck. years ago I wanted elec. start and purchased a 17 elec. start then purchased the tthp 36" front end. you may be able to do the same thing to convert your current mower to what you want.

good luck
