I told Jim Q about these two things when the deck was prototyped... These angle corners SUCK on a mower deck... /.........\ Lots of grass and weed types with stems avoid the deck period... If they are tall enough to make good contact with the deck skirt... Those angles part it like a comb and they will get missed. So you have mow hawk stringers between the passes... Or you accept excessive overlaps to avoid them. The eXmark was like this and it drove me nuts. Put corners on fabricated decks or have them round, not 45 degree angles and such.
