Question: Is the general consensus for deck pitch 1/8"???

I went over the pitch of the deck on the Lazer because it doesn't stripe like the Scag, or other Exmarks that I've seen. So I did an 1/8" pitch (front lower than rear, obviously) and gave it a shot. It seemed to be just a bit better, but it was poor quality turf I tested it on at my house. So I'll have to give it a shot this week on the bigger accounts. I did notice that it disperses clipping much more efficiently than it did before, I believe the pitch was level or close to it before.

Thanks for looking, you'll probably want to see my neighbours new toy. Remember the pictures of my Tacoma next to that big black Duramax? Well he got a new toy to replace that because that obviously wasn't big enough to haul his tri-axle. He had a D3G on it the other day. I'll grab some better pictures when I see him next. F-650 w/ 6.7 Cummins and a 6 speed Allison. Basically its the best of every single truck put into one awesome (and very expensive) package. He bought it in Georgia, flew in and drove it home. Its used, I believe it was in the $110k area.

It kinda makes sense that he got it, he couldn't really legally load up his trailer to the max and haul it was his 2500, so this is better. But now the capacity of this far outdoes the capacity of his trailer. He needs a tag trailer or something. And he can float like a few skid's at once.

Weather is weird here too KPZ, really windy and cold here today, they called for snow. I'm going to cut tomorrow. Today I am going to put the faststraps in my enclosed, and I thought of making a striping kit for the eXmark, just not sure where to get thick rubber from?
