Re: Uneven mowing


Here's my nickles worth:

Always mow with the engine on full throttle. The mower deck is designed for it. Plus, if you mulch or bag, it requires it.

Since you are leaving a stripe somewhere in the middle, don't try and take a cut every time. You will get better results that way regardless.

The front of the blades should be slightly lower than the rear. What sort of mower is this? There is often a method of adjusting the front wheels/Casters up and down by adding or removing washers to the wheel mount. Additionally, you can sometimes shim the rear, between the drive unit and the housing the deck is attached to. This is all assuming there isn't a built in adjustment.

Also make sure the rear tires have the proper air pressure. The tires sagging a bit can cause the rear of the deck to get too low.
