    I have seen some people talk about deck pitch and the quality of the lawn cut. I just got a new exmark metro 48 belt drive. Could someone explain to me what deck pitch is? I have the deck set up to cut at about 3inch

    It's the diference in hight of the deck, from the front to the back.

    The front of the deck should be set a little lower than the rear. Somewhere between 1/8-1/4" works good for me, on my 48 Encore fixed deck. It changes just by moving the spacers; it should be the same for the metro.
