This photo is a prime example of deck skip, this has nothing to do with the decks ability to process grass and discharge it evenly, this is a low place where the 472 did not allow the deck to follow the contour and cut the grass in the low spot. You can look just above the middle of the picture just to the left of the big clump, and you will see grass not cut off cleanly in the little swag.
You can then look at the next picture below where the Super Z went over the same exact low spot with blades not being sharpened in 62 hrs, with flex forks operating, and the deck went down and cut the grass missed by the 472, and the entire cut as can be seen by anyone is by far much smoother.
Would anyone care to explain how this is possible, while remembering the 472 was brand spanking new, with perfect blades. Anyone got a thought on why the 472 deck did not go down and cut this grass?
I love pictures, they do not lie about what is actually taking place. You can put your pointer tip touching the center of the Hustler deck, then move straight back towards the front of the picture three lengths of the pointer, and that is where the low place is that the Gravely went over and left uncut grass in the bottom. The Hustler covered the uncut grass left by the Gravely with its even disbursal of grass clippings on the left side of the Hustler photo.
I think anyone can see that the VX4 cut is by far cleaner than the X-Factor deck in this common Bermuda.
