I have a Craftsman SL3500 42" riding lwan mower. the two blads make uneven paths ans the left blade makes a cut about 1/4" lower than the right blade. What do I do?


You should be using a up lift blade it will help by sucking up the grass to be cut. You should have an adjust on both sides of the blade deck . As for the strip check to see if you have a wheel behind the mower deck. If you do it might be the cause for mower leaving a strip uncut . Sears has been noted for putting wheels in the path of the blade area and smashing the grass down . That is also why I suggest to use an up draft blade it should **** the grass back up again so you can cut it.

I have a 42 in riding mower and i need to know what could be causing it to mow grass uneven leaving a high streak in the middle of a cut?


Possibly blades need to be sharpened.also,you may be trveling too fast.only the first inch or two of the blades do the cutting.if the grass is higher than average,and you travel too fast,and the blades are dull,the unit cannot keep up with the rat of grass it has to cut every millisecond.hope this is useful.if it persistz,try being more specific and i will try again.i am a certified small engine mech.thanks,bart

The mower is mowing uneven in the front. what can i do? it seems that it is scalping the grass but both sides are level


Look under the mower deck. If you can't see well and work on it, you may have to remove the mower deck and flip it over on the ground. Grass and mud buildup in the decj could cause a blade to pinch grass, 'scalping' the lawn. Clean it all out. Dull blades cause cut grass to look torn and brown. Remove and sharpen. Bent blade will cause uneven cut. Replace it. Good luck! Please rate if you found this helpful, thanks!

Why does my 42 inched deck craftsman tractor cut uneven?


It needs to be leveled. Level it from side to side and front to back, then drop the front 1/4" lower than the rear. The hangers holding the deck in place are adjustable.

Uneven grass cutting


I have seen dull blades, blades not installed right and an un-level deck cause that.

Hope this helps.
