I think the Bob-Cat decks just don't generate much vacuum and I attribute that to the discharge chute being so small and essentially limiting the exhaust so that it can't generate a lot of vacuum. The newest Bob-Cat's came with a slightly wider discharge chute but, I don't know if they made much difference as far as striping goes. I'm all ears if anyone has some suggestions. I've already been though adjusting the deck pitch 1/8 to 1/4 inches lower in the front and that never helped I hate to say.
really, my bobcats out stripe just about any type of mower around here, def. much better than the scags i used to have..
