That looks good.

By going to the std high lifts vs the gators, you'll see an noticeably more pronounced stripe, and a slightly cleaner cut.

I am awaiting for my G5's to come in. Now I am a little hesitant because of the lack of striping that I am reading about. I didn't catch that in my research prior.

Sure they do, just not like the std high lifts.

I would say this is about the same as my Fastrak with the standard blades does.

Those stripes started looking a lot better after I raised the center gauge wheels so they didn't leave that ugly arse line down the center of each stripe. Plus, that was early in the year in 2010. A month or so later they looked a lot better as the grass thickened up.

This was done with either G5's or G6's.


With a deck that is adjusted by spacers, I go and raise the blades up slightly in the deck. This makes the back of the deck act as a stripper, pushing the grass over.
In the Exmark manual, it says that the more spacers you have under the deck the better the deck does at chopping up clippings. So I put 3 spacers under the deck in the fall with leaves.

Those are better lines than mine is making. What's the best site to use for parts. There are no local snapper dealers in my area.
