great mower i have a 48 and a 52 both run cut and stripes great.
make sure the deck is level, air pressure around 6-8psi, blades sharp
i reversed the cushion pad so your knees/lower thighs rest on it instead of your hips, seemed to help alot on keeping a straight line. took the front weight off and does help with you climbing out of ditches, plus it takes about 50lbs of the weight of the machine. controls are very sensitive, turns are the hardest part, because you tend to come into the end of line to fast. tires tear turf pretty easy on your turns in the beginning. i do kind of a rainbow turns instead of a 3pt turn. figuring your turns out is kinda of personal so try different ways.
great mower i wish i could get a 61''
