    No problem at all. Before you install the stripe kit hold it up in place and make sure the locations that are marked on it to cut are correct. They are incorrect for the 60" mowers. If its not correct just mark the correct spots and cut it. Me and mtmower had to install ours backwards with the shiny side toward the back of the mower. Another tip would be to use a 3/8 air ratchet to install the bolts. The holes are not threaded and the bolts are designed to cut there own threads. It takes a star bit which i did not have. I found a hex bit that fit in the bolts tight so I used that.

    I may buy some thick flat bar stock and bolt a solid piece all the way across the bottom of the rubber that contacts the ground. The kit works but not as defined as I would have liked to see and I think it is because the rubber is not stiff enough to put much downward pressure on the grass. I would try putting the kit on with the last hole at the top. Maybe that would help with a little extra pressure on the grass. I used 2nd hole.

    M&M, What's your blade part # for the 3" high lift? Is it a straight or humped blade? Is it notched? I talked to Dennis at Oregon and he found some 2.5" but didn't have any luck in a notched, straight, high lift in 3".

    It would be a Hustler SuperZ blade.

    Hey GMLC I have some Oregon 91-623 SUPER high lifts I run on my older 152z.The are 3" wide notch blades and have a 1 1/2" lift.They cut nice and discharge super far in dry conditions.The only problem I have with them is they zap alot of hp from the motor and really draw down 25hp kaw in wet conditions.I might try a set of the factory 452 blades to see how they perform.

    I use those blades occasionally for a bi-weekly account using a FB460V(12.5 HP) grind the lift down to 1 1/4",re-balance, makes big difference not sapping the HP and discharging is about the same or better cuz the strain on the engine has been reduced,at least that's what I've experienced.

    3.5" cut on this lawn today. This lawn has a lot of junk in it. Has not been treated in years. I could beat the little old asian dude for not trimming those pines up you see toward the back. They beat the crap out of me trying to get under and around them. That is why the stripes curve a bit at the end.

    Clover stripes! That lawn needs some trimec. We have some lawns that have clover pretty bad in them. Is it hot up there? It is supposed to be 95 and is super humid today here. I am glad we got out early and got done early. 11 tomorrow and we are done for the week! Should be done by 11:30 tomorrow. 6 in one spot are 1/2 to a little over an acre each.
