Is anybody SURE that the adjustable baffles come on a 460, and could somebody please provide me a picture of that on a 460.

GMLC, you and PROSTREETCAMARO and 2 of the reasons on this site that I was so stuck on getting a Gravely. The other is how quick a Gravely Rep on this site is always pretty quick to respond. But I must admit, I pretty aggravated with this machine already. Didn't think I should have to bring a brand new machine home, just to learn how to adjust the deck myself.

And HAWKSHOT99, thanks for the reply. Blades are brand new, actually the machine is brand new, only had .4 hours on meter when I got home with it. I can understand some things not being perfect, like a scratch or something, but you would think a dealer would have the deck SPOT ON since that is what everybody is really comparing. Unless the dealer's shop just don't know anything about pitch.


My 460 has adjustable baffles. My bet is on the deck not being setup properly and if you don't see these baffles then somebody left them off or it is the older deck. Are the spindles red? If they are it is the new deck. If they are not red then its the older deck.

Maybe it was the weed wacker man on the grassy knoll...
