    I don't use a roller and I set the deck myself. Thanks for the compliment. Of course, I do the fertilizing, too. So it's a combination of both that give that nice stripe.

    Just as good is fine as I am happy with the cut the Toro gives now. If anything can give me the same quality with better customer service I'll be giddy like a schoolgirl.
    you can make any commercial walk leave a stripe like that, hell I can make even a consumer unit stripe it is mostly in the setup. The thing is a scag is setup from the factory to stripe so some claim it is the only one that can do it. But you did a nice job on the deck setup.

    another tip is someone shows you a picture with a better stripe it could be the deck is not level, that would look like a nice stripe in a photo taken at the perfect angle

      to give you a good answer we would need the engine options. Without that your going to get an uninformed answer.

      Also for your information Exmark is owned by Toro and I can assure you the quality of the exmark is no higher then the quality of the toro units. But I do agree buy a mower from a good servicing dealer, that way you can be assured it was set up properly, and get support.
      They both have the same 18hp motor.

        1/4" forward pitch for a small deck seems to work.

        Double blades really improves the striping, too.

          The only good advice I see in this thread is from Mark, he apparently had trouble with the 40" deck discharging and giving a good cut. I would say you might be better off with the 36"
