Personally I would try leveling it first before heeling to see if your going in the right direction. Now that I think about it it makes sense. Think of the blade like an airplane wing. If the blade is pitched down in the front it creates down force. If the blade is heeled down in the rear it creates up force.

You got it. If the deck is absolutely perfectly level flat it will create the most vacuum and cut the cleanest.
