    what kind of decks do you guys run? i've heard that alot of people run the fixed deck mowers. what are the pros and cons of both and which is better. i thought floating decks were good so when you have a yard that isn't so flat that you don't dig it up. but i've heard about the cut not being as even???? need alittle help with this one. thanks bill

    Well a floating deck is great with hilly terrain. Less scalps. But more moving parts means more maint.
