This is common knowledge to some but might be useful to others. Been having trouble getting stripes in fescue with a Gravely 36" Pro G WB. I have the Gravely striping kit as well as a home made chain striper on the back. I had poor results up until today, so I started looking into deck pitch. This model seems to have no natural deck pitch from my measurements, nor does it have specific pitch adjustments. It is a fixed deck with manual height adjustment, so instead of having the front and back settings the same as I thought would be normal (3 inches) I tried the front at 2.5 and rear at 3.0 It is adjustable at 1/2 inch increments. All of the sudden....nice stripes that are very pronounced. So it seems that deck pitch is a huge deal when it comes to striping. I've read here that all you need for pitch is 1/4 or 1/8 inches, but in my case this is the only way to accomplish it. If there is a better way to acheive the necessary pitch, I'm open for suggestions.
