it may be caused by
1. wheels height - check the height of the wheels .
2. different grass hieghts - circles would appear in places where the grass is higher . check your watering system to ensure water evenly spread . consider sand top soling where the grass is higher .

5-h-push mower has bad veberation blade is on tight

bent blade, bent crankshaft, blade not balanced are all possible causes for vibration.
If you sharpened the blade recently try rebalancing it.
You could have struck something while mowing and bent the blade or bent the crankshaft on the engine.
If blade is bent replace it. If out of balance, rebalance it.
If crankshaft is bent replace it, have it straightened or replace the engine.
To replace or straighten the crankshaft it will require engine tear down which requires knowledge and tools for small engines.

Mower Blade and shaft wiggle and scalped the grass

The blade is either bent from hitting something solid or it is about to become dislodged from the motor shaft and could hurt someone very badly,. Take spark plug wire off the spark plug, then lift mower deck up on two wheels and grab the blade to see if it is loose, tighten as needed. If not then visually inspect the blade, rotate it a few times noticing the depth of each side of the blade . If it is not rotating at the same height, in 360 degree rotation then replace it now.

Uneven cutting, scalps

Your tires could need air, especially if it does the scalping while in a hard turn. The spindle could be cracked or the deck could be unlevel. Unless you hit something with the blades recently, I would check tire pressure first.

I hope this helps.

What direction to put lawn momer blade back on.

The blade should usually be placed so that the flat part of the blade is down, with the tapered part of the sharpened area up. Other than that, I would try to match pattern on the blade with the mower. Good luck...Lee

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!

Does not give a short enough cut

Have you always had this problem?
Have you had the blades off to sharpen?
Could the blades have been mistakenly put on upside down ?
The turned up piece goes toward the deck
Check your deck hangers to be sure they are free and not binding anywhere and to be sure they are dropping as far as they can go in the lowest deck setting.
your deck should move up and down evenly as you lower and raise it.
Unless spacers are an option for this cause i wouldnt use them.
Check the tire pressure 14 psi front 10psi rear .

hope some of this helps for you
