Most of you guys know I recently got a 23/54 Quicktrak. So far I've been pretty pleased. I am however, a little dissapointed in the striping. When I demoed the 48" this spring, it striped real nice. Now, the stripes lack definition. It's not an issue with the grass, because the grasshopper is still striping well. I checked the deck set-up, and it's set-up properly per the manual. However, the manual calls for the rear of the deck to be 1/4" higher than the front, as measured at the blades, front to back. I'm running just single hi-lifts right now. I'll be using gators as soon as they come in (dealer back order). Haven't I read here that the back of the deck can be lowered to improve striping? Any other suggestions?
