    Well here is the pics after leveling the deck this weekend... The cut was a new direction so was not done in the normal pattern and pretty much the same thing!!! But gotta look on the bright side after a $3600 bagger just came in this is what I have now.... Either a crooked mower or junk bagger I am lost for words with this mower and company! Cannot get the ROPS up look at the distance between the two side....

    Have you brought this to your dealers attention? who is your dealer Riggs?
    They can get this resolved for you I am sure, even if they have to work with us back in KS we will get this taken care of.

    Yes took it to Riggs two days ago, have not heard anything so will be calling them today.... Mowed with a X-one with a 60" VX4 demo loaner they gave me and seems to cut better with a slight trace of the lines all the way in the dark stripe to the left, but much better then mine by far....

    Have your deck pitched almost flat to 1/8 nose low and lower the adjustable front deck wall. It will take more horsepower but will stripe and cut much better. Also, make sure to keep the discharge chute down. It will also cut and stripe better with the chute down.

    raise deck and sharpen blades
  6. Did any of you guys find a fix or solution to this problem? I have a super z 60 vx4 and it does this exact same thing. It leaves those lines pretty much were the blades meet. when I first got the mower it was bad. I went through the deck leveling procedure according to the manual and it has improved but I can still see those stupid lines.
