I just purchased a 40" Toro Turbo Force T2 and I have to say I love the mower, I am just having a hard time with the deck digging into the lawn and making scalped lines. How do you pros cut without doing this? I do not have the smoothest lawn so I am thinking I may need to rase the deck up to 2.5 inches or more to prevent scalping. When I was cutting with my 26" Exmark Metro I was getting little circles all over the place so that should tell you I have some problems. With the 40" Toro, what is the proper procedure for mowing a side slope...would you mow with the anti-scalp wheel on the upper side of the hill or the lower? This particular mower has one wheel on left front, and two in the front center and then a plate in the rear.
