I have the option to buy one or the other. The hilly lake areas that I am in are well-suited for a fixed so it doesn't lean to one side, but there is a lot of uneven ground on the lake properties and the fixed deck could scalp, but worse, the cut appears uneven in places. Does anyone swear in either direction? Keep in mind this is my start-up mower so I need to be sure to give the best impression! Thanks for the input!
