    I raised the deck on my Ferris 48" WB last week from 3 to 3.5" since it is so dry here. Now it blows out the front really bad. I'm eating grass and leaves all day long. Should I pitch the front up more, or down more?

    You need to have the rear of the deck pitched slightly higher than the front (approx. 1/8 to 1/4")

    Thanks. I'll drop the front down just a bit and see how it does.

    Maybe but the rear on mine is 1 setting lower than the front...

    I think what this means is you just have to play with it, the fact that it makes a difference I know for sure it does, but it depends on the machine too.
