floating or fixed deck - Lawn Service Business Forum

13/01/2006  Back to the orignal question>>>> A floating deck mower does not make that much more of a bigger difference when it comes to scalping. On small steep slopes I have found that a floating deck is more lickley top scalp than a fixed deck. The biggest differece is the ability to change cutting heghts easily. A fixed deck can only be adjusted up in down a few inches

08/03/2010  Yeah, a fixed deck is easier to change the height, but I usually cut my yards all the same, so I rarely change the height, and I noticed my floating decks tend the get the back end of the deck pushed up and gets hung up and you dont even notice until you see the cut it is leaving! I wish the fixed deck was an option on the big full size WBs, but Ive never seen one on

pros and cons of floating and fixed decks LawnSite™ is ...

11/07/2006  The primarly problem with the 48" deck on the ZTR is working parallel to slopes. The floating deck will more likely leave a sea-saw effect than the 36" floating deck. Also, when working around the base of trees, the fixed deck will not gouge as easily on the outside edge as the wider, floating deck.

Deck! Lawn Mower Forum

28/09/2013  Fabricated decks are inherently a thicker gauge (usually minimum of 10 gauge up to 5gauge), with reinforcements where the spindles are mounted, and will hold up longer than a stamped deck (normally 12gauge/11gauge, and sometimes 10gauge). The fabricated decks also tend to be free-floating and/or chain hung on the upper models versus fixed ...

Floating Decks and scaliping? LawnSite™ is the largest ...

06/07/2011  Any rotary mower of decent size is going to scalp in places at 1". Personally, I'd be using a reel mower if I wanted my Bermuda at 1". If you want to just discuss scalping differences between a floating and fixed deck the answer is obvious. Floating decks are less prone to scalp or nobody would buy them.

Is there a Zero Turn with a free floating deck? - TractorByNet

06/06/2016  I suppose you could call any mower deck that is hung by a chain to be free floating. My Ferris mower(IS700Z) is chain hung. I don't know what it would mow like if allowed to "float" since by pinning it at 2" it really cuts too low for my needs. Any lower and it would be scalping the lawn, not good for the grass to cut it that low unless you are getting rains every

The fixed deck stand on lawn mowers offers a lower price point, which can help entice one to choose them over a traditional walk-behind mower.

Benefits of a commercial walk-behind? - The Lawn Forum

05/06/2018  I love the floating deck for the ease of HOC adjustment. Just be aware that with the belt drive, the reverse is an “assisted” reverse. Meaning, when the transmission is in reverse, the operator has to pull the unit backward to “assist” with the movement of the unit. This is true for mine, not sure if that is true for the JDWG32A. I don’t ever shift the transmission to reverse on
