Uneven Cutting with my Zero Turn 50"...Possible Causes?


First is being sure all your tires have proper air pressure and you don't have a bent blade. Then while parked on flat concrete and both outside blades at 3 and 9 o'clock measure blade height far left side of deck and far right side and compare. I there is a difference the entire deck is out of level and should be adjusted. Then remove the blade drive belt from one of the pulleys so everything is slacked. Grab each blade and see if it wobbles or has excessive play and check the spindle housings for cracks or breaks. If you find a housing with wobble or play the bearings in that spindle are shot ( this is a lot harder to detect with the belt tension on the pulleys) and should be replaced. If you find a broke or cracked housing the housing will need to be replaced. Either one of these situations may not be obvious with the mower at rest but the blade will wobble at speed causing uneven cuts.

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.

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!

My deck cuts shoter on the rt,ie uneven


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.

Cuts lawn uneven, one side shorter than other


Was it cutting uneven before you changed blades? If so, you may not have gotten the blade on the shaft correctly. There is an adjustment in the center of the deck hanger on each side. You can turn the 9/16 nut up or down on each side to level it out.

Craftsman 42 inch riding lawn mower is not cutting evenly


The first thing to check is your blades. If one is bent, it will never cut even. It happens a lot hitting roots, antbeds, etc. Mulching blades will bend easier than a straight blade. It's best to take them off and lay one on top of the other to see if they're bent.

I sharpened the blades at the end of last mowing season. The next cut was very uneven, so I checked to make sure that the blades were installed properly and re-leveled the deck. The last cut was even...


The problem you discribe is the classic broken blade spindle or quill. The tube that supports the bearings between the deck pulleys and the blades is almost certainly broken. Look under the deck [mower OFF] at the piece right above the blade that is malfunctioning and you will probably find a bad bearing or a chunk of the tube that holds the bearing/blade to be missing. That happens when the blade gets 'wacked'. The outer edge is cutting too high because the belt is pulling the shaft toward the center of the deck. The quills are fairly easy to replace. Get the model number off your tractor before you go to buy the part.
