How accurate is your deck height setting?

    Have you ever actually verified the blade height of your mower compared to the indicated setting? Was it accurate? Since we run the decks canted 1/4" lower in the front, what is the proper way to measure height - front tip of front blade (if you've got three blades), or centerline of deck? Is the measurement you take on a hard, level surface going to give you the same height when you're on the turf? What are your methods???
