    Is anyone running a trimstar 48 cutting at 3.5 " and not getting uncut grass on the left side?
    Did it cut good straight out the door?
    Did you have to do something to get it to cut properly.
    This is the second one in a week that is doing it.
    Thanks

    Bought one this spring. Much cleaner cut than what we have on the older hustlers, but it will leave the stringers between the blade overlaps that the XR7 is known for. For us, not probably enough to fuss with and we haven't heard anything from any customers (watch we'll probably get 10 calls this week). The deck really packs up with grass in the back though and yes we scape every morning when blades get sharpened. Overall a decent machine with quirks like everything else out there.

    I wish I was only getting stringers
    At 3.5 inches, I get a 4-5 " strip the entire length of the stripe
    The lower I go the smaller the stripe.
    I think it would be gone at 2.5

    last years Super WB

    After 13 hours of testing and working all the options, the dealer put
    2 baffles in and it is cutting much better.
    We tried 4 blade options
    and the fusions worked best with the 2 wedges.
    With 1 baffle ( between Mid and Left side) the super high lift worked best.
    It can now be used on my better properties.

    Are these baffles made by hustler?

    yes
    I am running 2 with stock blades
    the cut isn't an "A" it is a "B"
    If it wasn't for the controls, it would have gone back
    A+ for controls and striping
