I asked this question in the commercial mowing forum and got no response so I'll try here. I was wondering about the correct pitch on the XR7 deck. When everyone says they change it to 1/4" pitch does this mean lower in the front, or lower in the back? All other decks that I know of are pitched forward, but my dealer said the xr7's are backwards and the front is higher than the rear. I was just wondering if it was possible that people are forgetting this and setting the pitch forward when it is designed to be backwards, and therefore getting a worse cut? Or am I just confused on the pitch of the deck? The reason I'm asking is because I demoed an xr7 deck that I know was lower in the rear, and it cut very well. Any ideas?
