• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

Question on fixed deck mowers........

I have a Bunton 48 inch cut fixed deck mower. Does anyone know if there is a kit that can mount anti-scalping wheels on the deck. If not, does anyone know why they don't mount these wheels for fixed decks, but provide them for the floating decks. If anyone knows of a kit, please provide a link. Thanks guys!!

wouldn't anti-scalp wheels tend to float the front and drive wheels off of the ground on a fixed deck machine? just a thought.<p>GEO

also, on a fixed deck, the wheels would have to float the whole machine or at least one side of it, thats 200-400 pounds. thats a lot of pressure for a small wheel, it would probably sink in the ground, or gouge it. on a floating deck WB, the anti-scalp wheel only has to float the deck, maybe 50-150 pounds, and 150 pounds is a very high estimate.
