    It appears from pictures that the warrior has a bar going to the front pivoting axle so that when a wheel drops in a low spot the deck will move up or down. Am I correct and if so, does it scalp when a tire drops in a low spot or hole? It looks like it would. Also how do you like the mower in general?

    If the operator doesn't like the way the front end pivots independent of the
    back of the machine, all they do is pull a pin (might be two) and the entire
    assembly becomes like a fixed deck (except it still hangs on chains).

    Like any floating deck, the amount of motion the mower can undertake due to
    terrain inconsistencies is limited by mechanical circumstance, it only moves an
    inch or two until it hits the stop.

    Yes, if an operator angles the mower across a bend wrong it will scalp,
    all mowers do that, the wider the deck, the fatter the chance.

    The deck itself hangs from the frame, it does not move completely independently with
    either the front or the rear... It is attached at four points with chains, hence it strikes
    a sort of balance between... Keeping in mind that no matter how great the design the
    deck is one solid piece of steel so this balance may or may not provide the most optimal cut,
    in most cases it simply depends.

    Thanks Topsites--I thought a picture I saw showed a flat piece that the run from the front of the deck to the rear of the right side of the front axle. I have a dealer not far away--guess i will have to go and take a look see.
