    My Bobcat wb is a striping machine!
    I ran the zt200 for three years and was never satsfied with it's striping or clean out in heavy grass.
    A little dew and clumps everywhere.
    I belive the answer is double blades.
    And I wish I tried it 3 years ago.
    If that don't work, go with a strip of rubber attached to the back of the deck to brush the grass.

    Best of luck! BTW my zt was very dependable.

    In my area nobody stripes (but me.) They race around the yard and have to double cut evrything. My bobcat 48" w\b is truly a striping machine. Two things to check. Make sure the front of your deck is a 1/4" lower than the back. Second put doubles on that machine(I myself have two highlifts and am going to put a highlift and a gator for fall). Two highlifts will give you the cut you want with the stripe you want. The other day I was mowing a yard and the landscaper next door almost drove his mower into a tree he was watching me so much.:) Hope this helps you. :blob4: :D

    By the way that deck lowering is what really makes the difference.
