    Is Exmark going to be introducing a 32" Viking Hydro Walk-behind with ECS next year?

    Thanks for taking the time to come in and inquire about Exmark. As a matter of fact, yes we are offering a 32" Hydro with ECS next year.
    As Exmark representatives did shows, schools, and training sessions last year, this was one of the things that we were told we needed to offer, so we will. As of now, it will come in the Viking package with a 15hp Kohler.
    Let me take a moment to thank everyone for their input, it makes our jobs easy!
    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us again.

    The 2002 15-hp 32" Viking Hydro will come with the ECS controls and is a fixed deck unit. We will not offer the 32" with a floating deck.

    With a 32" unit, you do not gain much by having a floating deck. The more narrow a deck is, the less likely it is to scalp. As long as the cutter is conscious of the limitations of the machine, he should not have many problems with scalping.

    The price of this unit will be between $3500 and $4000; however, these will not be available until the Spring of 2002. We should have more information on the 32" Viking Hydro and all of the new and improved products on our web site later this fall. Keep checking periodically for the updates - www.exmark.com.

    Thanks for your interest,
