    On a 48" Walk Behind, is a Floating Deck "WAY BETTER" than a "Fixed Deck" or just sort of "So-So" ie) Not that much better??

    What exactly is the difference?

    For us the difference is huge, mainly for two reasons. First, we change height often and a floating deck is easier to do this with. Pulling 4 pins is far easier than adjusting spacers, etc.. The second reason we now use only floating decks is because of the small hills and uneven ground we commonly deal with. A floating deck generally scalps less.
