    Depends on your properties. If they are generally smooth, get the fixed. Most of the time scalping with a 36" isn't much of a problem. The design of them doesn't let them have much of a problem.

    I wouldnt worry about the scalping. I would think about how often you have to change the cutting height.

    I run a metro 36 fixed deck and have not had a single scalp since I started using it. A couple of the Lawns I do are very uneven and still there is no scalping.

    Have the fixxed deck and love it. Couldn't justify the extra bucks for the floating deck. :D

    ...but the floating deck is just soooooo darn easy to adjust....and besides, it's just soooooo 'floaty'! ;)

    I wanted hydro drive and went with the Turf Tracer HP (36'')...so a floating deck was what I was stuck with. :D

    I do not think you can go wrong with either...as long as it is Exmark!
