I have a 32" Viking with a 15hp kohler on it. I'm very happy with the control system and ease of use. I have one problem can't seem to fix. The mower in wet and dry grass seems to be laying down the grass blades and not cutting everything and leaveing my lawns looking like carpets. I'm not asking for perfection but i see other machine making much cleaner cuts. I've tried just about everything i can think about... Changing deck hieght, changeing the spacers in between the spindle(manual said 4 on the underside of the deck = highest quality) made sure belt is adjusted blades are sharp. changing the tire pressure to change the pitch of the deck nothing seems to make a differance. It gets worse when i move faster i'm about to get a sulky and i am afraid of what the grass is gonna look like when i speed up. I was thinking dobules might make a differenance but everybody on here brags about the quality exmark delivers...(reason why i bought exmark).
