Looks great Lynn. I have a XT3200-72 and have a couple of questions for you. I'm not sure if you've read any of my posts about my frustrations with my machine. I have been making progress slowly but surely. My problem is with the discharge.. I seem to get a lot of small clumps that just drop to the side of the discharge chute. I am cutting lawns that are anywhere from 7-9" down to 4-4.5" The small clumps are not the real problem though as I understand that I am cutting a lot of grass. The real problem is on my second pass I can't make the clipping disappear. Sometimes it will just move them to a new row or it won't even lift them up off the ground under the deck..... and sometimes it will even lay a very thin and neat strip of clippings right under the deck. It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Anyway.. since you have (or have had) so many 72" Dixies I wanted to see if you've encountered the same thing? Maybe with the XT3000? I have been using the stock high lift blades. I picked up a set of the 3" blades yesterday.. so I'll see how they do tomorrow. I have the deck pitched approx 1/4" Thanks!
