    You link look good but shows to much tire stripe in your deck stripe a roller would help your mower to even the color out on your stripes.

    But still looks good for a Kubota I mow a lawn next to one and That guys runs a Kubota doesn't stripe well at all

    It will help that, but its due to me mowing so long. The setting is 4 3/4 but I think its more like 4 inches.
