    I have one, 36" and it is a pretty good mower. Fast and gives a good cut.

    I have a Viking 36" and Kaw. 15hp, great mower, cuts fast, low maintenance, and worth the extra buck. What size are you looking for?

    I have 2 Viking 32"'s which are Now Discontinued....One w/15hp Kohler...One w/15hp Kaw....Prefer the 36" Tracers.....eXmark Should have Made a 32" Tracerhp instead of the 26" Metro.

    My Viking is a hydro, as I thought all Vikings were. The Metro is the belt driven version.

    As far as the quality, I am very pleased with it so far. Maneuvers easy, and leaves a very nice cut. The ECS controls are very easy to use.

    The belt was called the Viking Posi drive. Nice set up for a belt drive. eXmark was nuts to stop making this mower. They said sales dropped off though.

    I have a 48" and I love it. It cuts great, I have a mulching kit on it and it works great.
