You mentioned most of your lawns are cut at 3.5in Was this before or after you checked it?
My Scag is off by about 1/4in. So when I'm cutting, I have to keep that in mind. I tried to adjust it out but it wouldn't without sacrificing transport position. In other words, to get the cut height exact as the setting says, I couldn't lock the deck into transport. Weird but it cuts great and stripes great too so I left it alone.
