Question about deck adjustment

    I read in another thread about deck adjustment causing narrow stripes. I've noticed this with my last two mowers and it has driven me crazy. A member said that the particular mower is out of adjustment either front to rear.

    Which way does the deck need to be adjusted?
    Anyone know how to do this on a SCAG?

    With my other Scags I just mowed and they striped pretty good. With my 61" Tiger I got the stripe kit and believe me it makes a big diference. I looked at my deck when I first got it and it is level all the way around "no pitch". I took a tape measure and marked it and all around the deck its the same height. I would suggest getting the stripe kit and start setting your lawn apart from the other lcos. Simply the Best!:usflag:

    I got the stripe kit, and it works well. The "little narrow opposite" stripes drives me crazy.
