    I've been mowing for 5years with exmark wb. I just got my first ztr 27horse 60inch. I read to stripe, lower front of deck 1/4inch. this is easy on the wb, but can anyone tell me how to set the deck on the ztr or would the stripe kit from exmark work better?

    Would appreciate any info.
    Thanks, Duke

    The setting that is recommend (and necessary) for these decks, is to have a pitch of 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch difference from the lower front tip of the blades to the lower rear tip of the blades. This is with the blades pointing straight forward and backward. Now, if you have a Lazer with a 60" deck, you will have NO problem string anthing, regardless. Just use the same set lines, and you're good to go.
