I've got a fixed deck walk behind. Over time I have gotten used to what I need to do to prevent scalping and gouging although sometimes it is virtually unavoidable (but not very often). Now that I have gotten used to the machine I have accepted that there are additional steps that I must take to maneuver over uneven ground. Recently, while taking these extra steps, and getting tired of it, I got to wondering, what are the PRO's of having a fixed deck? I can't come up with any answers, but would love to hear some. Help put my mind at ease that a fixed deck is better in some ways. I was looking at some John Deere standers and z's and they've got floating decks and thought "man, wouldn't that be nice to have".
