One other thing to keep in mind for the Woods 59 at least is that the mower deck pivots at that rear hole as you raise and lower it. If you frequently deal with heavy stuff, you may want to use a higher hole than normal.
As mine is now, the front is a bit lower than the back at standard cutting height as it should be. However, when the grass gets thick and I raise the deck to do a partial-height first cut, it tips the deck up so that it is now double cutting and I still bog down.
I plan to work on some long-frozen nuts this weekend to see if I can resolve this with a more aggressive foreword angle.
