    Did you check the air pressure in the tires...this will cause the deck to drop in the direction of the turn

    Make sure the deck is level with a bubble type level called a torpedo level.

Check your tire pressures:
10 psi. for rear tires.
14 psi. for the front.

Note that according to MTD:
Making sharp right hand turns. Twin-blade mower decks are designed with the discharge on the right side and two side-by-side blades. The side-by-side twin blade decks have the left hand blade positioned slightly forward and in front of the right blade. This provides cutting overlap when traveling in a straight line. As a result, the tractor should mainly operated making primarily left hand turns when cutting. During left turns this cutting overlap is maintained. If turning right when, it is possible to negate this overlap and leave an uncut strip.

You have a short somewhere . A cut or stripped wire that , at the time of lowering your deck, touches the body. It's like turning off your key. Look around under your deck and you will find what I'm talking about. Fix wire and tie up to prevent future problems. GOOD LUCK.

My tractor cuts uneven when i am cutting my yard


Check your blades common problem with uneven cut is a bent blade. Next find a level spot like a padio and take a torpedo level place it on the front center side to side not front to rear. On one side or the other you should see a J(jay) bolt with a nut tighten to raise losen to lower.

I have a problem leveling my mower deck. I level it at the sides and front .I use the mower and it cuts uneven. mower is deck is out of alignment. less than 1 hour on it.


The deck could be bent, or you will probably have to level the back of the deck as well. Another thing to check is the air in the tires, this can cause an uneven cut. Although the tire may look pumped up, with the weight of a person on the tractor can cause an uneven cut.

Check your tire pressure first, uneven tore pressure will cause this problem.On the rear of cutting deck on both sides there are height adjustments, if your deck has a rear roller this also can be adjusted to compensate,If your a stout person sitting on tractor can cause unevenes.

Mtd riding mower: right mower blade cutting uneven, but don't see problem


The blade can be bent or the deck is not level. Adjust the deck and level it from side to side. Now level it from front to rear with the front of the deck 1/4" lower than the back. If after leveling it, you find it still cuts uneven remove all blades and inspect them. You will more than likely find one is bent. Replace a bent blade.
