This may sound crazy, but have you ever looked closely at the underside of the blower housing? I've seen a couple that were worn through before. If the fan or a pulley is in any way making contact at all with the grass, it could be leaving that line.

I haven't noticed a hole or anything and anyways the blower on an ultra vac is on the top, nowhere close to the grass.

I thought so, but wasn't positive on that with Exmark. Just wanted to throw that out there for checking as well. I hope you get it sorted out.
