    Our problem was that the plate would dig into the ground since it extend below the edge of the deck and then would curl in causing the blade to hit the lip of the plate. After many repairs(banging plate out) we started having spindle failures on that spindle(cracked housings). Also our operator do try and trim with that side out of neccisity and that compounded the problem.
    Now the operators are happy and we have no more problems with spindle failures, the blade hitting the plate or the plate trying to curl under the deck.
