I agree the floating deck is the way to go, but if you are just aquiring customers and budget is limited, a floating is not that bad. I used mine for 4 years and did not have any problems with it.Originally posted by SharpCutLC
If you could afford the floating deck, get it!! because it will save you in the long run when adjusting the deck on the job site.
That was my point, its not like you will be changing the deck height on every job. I set mine at in the spring and never change the setting until the late fall. But this year, I just lowered it a half an inch.Originally posted by grassyfras
Thanks for your replies guys. I forgot to mention I currently run a 36" exmark floating deck. I dont change the height alot but maybe once a week for a lawn or two. So I'm still not sure if its worth it.
I still think that it is on how you approach the hill, ditch or whatever.Originally posted by grassyfras
How do you think it would do on turning on hills. My friend has an exmark metro (fixed) 36" and he says it scalps on hills but no where else. I hate to shell out a grand for a floating deck but if i scalp on hills...
