    I just picked up a Exmark 50" 26HP Koh, yesterday and I am having one problem with it. That problem is this machine is leaving a strip of uncut grass where the right side and middle blades are to over lap. I tried different heights and different speeds, and no matter what I still get it.

    I took it back to the dealer and they gave me a few more RPM's and put on edge on the blades, but even that didn't work. What is the cause?

    If that is a new mower I would insist the dealer figure that out...

    From what we have been reading here about the Triton Deck I believe the dealer already knows what the problem is.

    Do a search on Triton Decks and see what the others have written.

    that is your problem definately its a triton. only way to ATTEMPT that worked for me is to cut lower. if you can just sell it. you would probably make more money in the long run and you can actually cut the grass too

    Try adjusting the deck pitch.
