    What is the trade off between a ZT mower with a chain suspended deck versus a ZT mower with a solid link suspended deck?

    Will they mow differently? Is one more durable than the other? What are the pros and cons?

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience,

    I think a deck hung from chains will bounce more than a deck hung from a steel hangers. They both float so the cut as far as eveness goes should be about the same.
