Doesn’t play by the rule of you get what you pay for.
You can look, but you simply won’t find a better value in the Hydro walk-behind category than the fixed-deck Viking. Exmark’s® patented Hydro Quick Track Adjustment allows easy and fast adjustments without tools. Our patented flow control baffles deliver an unsurpassed cut. And you’ll feel the difference our patented Enhanced Control System (ECS) makes after a long, and very productive, day. Simply put, the Viking is the mower of choice for professionals who want Hydro walk-behind performance combined with the value of a fixed deck design.
