    there is a 2004 Exmark Viking Hydro ECS controls 15 HP Kawasaki engine with 588 hours on it. the price right now is $2025. should i make a bid? my only thing is that it doesnt have the anti scalping wheels on the front of the deck. does anybody have one of these and does it scalp all the time if youre not really careful? please reply quickly. thank you

    and heres the link to the mower ..... http://cgi.ebay.com/Exmark-viking-h...8QQihZ005QQcategoryZ71272QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    BRIAN--the bid seems very reasonable to me at this point.

    and yes...you must be much more careful with the fixed deck regarding the scalping.

    and...ideally...a 17 hp would beat the 15 in the performance department.

    good luck!

    is there any possible way for me to install anti-scalping wheels on the front of the deck if i happen to get it?

    Brian,

    We have a 17hp and everyone loves it. That machine leaves a great cut. The fixed deck can be an issue with scalping, but we haven't really had any problems with it. Good Luck!
