    John,
    I don't think it is actually a floating deck, the RH is for Rapid Height adjustment. when you adjust the hieght of cut, the deck and engine frame move up and down together.

    The answer is no sorry guys. That is the only reason I would hesitate before I bought one.

    I see your point. I do believe that if you hit uneven turf it will go up and down. But it is easy to adjust the hight.I had a Hustler 251K that was set up the same way and the deck did go up and down like on the walks. It is 80 to 100 pounds heavier then a deck with no engine on it.

    I don't think it would float up, as I believe that it stays in it's locked position. The other thing I dislike about this option is the face as you lower the height, you are lowering the handles as well, which doesn't bode well if your a taller person. But not having tried running it on uneven turf to test it, so I can't answer with 100% accuracy.

    If that decks hits something dead on something could break because you have all the weight of the motor on the deck and it is locked in position. And you would probably take a big dive.....over the handles. But the good news it hasn't for a year and we use it very heavy use.. We don't drive like hell or cut cow pastures and we use the seat so RH adjusting isn't a problem. For small residential the sentar 36" is a a big winner .....we bought it over a Scag 36" ZTR and we are Scag guys.

    Ed
    When you get your hight, is the deck in a (fixed) position or will it move up and down with the ground?? This is on your rh one.

    It is a straight connect linkage to the adjustment handle that locks into postions. So is almost likea fixed deck, but there is likely a little flex in the entire linkage mechanism but not much.. It will scalp but not significant on our type of lawns. Maybe a larger deck than 36" might be a lot worse if they have RH don't know.
