Thanks! That makes sense. I knew the slots were for the tilt, but forgot about the centering of the cutters. How do you set the tilt of the guards? Level or slightly pointed up?

It depends entirely on what you are cutting, and how close you want to cut. If you are making hay and want to get as much of the crop as possible, you would tilt them more or less level, or maybe even pointed slightly downward. If you are clipping some pasture ground, or mowing down weeds, you might want to tilt it slightly up.

Thanks again!! It will be used mostly for weeds so I will tilt it up slightly as I thought it should be. Just wanted an expert's advice.
