I think i would raise the whole thing up on jack stands and take a look at the bottom of the deck. do not start it of course, but the problem should be evident. 42 inch generally means only 2 blades which are cutting on the outside leaving you a mohawk. so something is blocking the grass from being cut in the center. if it is by chance a 3 blade deck , then something is wrong with the center blade, if it is there i would guess a broken key.

    TRY CHECKING THE MANDREL. YOU MAY HAVE HIT A FOREIGN OBJECT THAT STOPPED THE BLADE AND AS A RESULT STRIPPED THE GEAR ON ONE OF THE MANDRELS.

Why is my husqvarna zero turn leaving a strip of uncut grass on the left side of the deck


I have a 2014 HUSQVARNA RZ5424 that I just changed the blades on for the first time now 2017. I got new gator blades because of all the good reviews on them. They are about as good as a screen door on a submarine at 300 feet deep. There the same length as the original blades but leaves two rows of uncut grass about a inch wide regardless of how you try to cut it. Only 240 hours on mower, deck clean ,spindles kept greased . Went back to new Husquvarna blades like the ones made for it. PROBLEM SOLVED. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY. REL.

Uncut grass in center & higher grass cut on right.


Hi, this may sound obvious but make sure the new blade is the same type as the old one and make sure it is not fitted upside down. Spin the blades and make sure the tips are level with each other, this will tell you if the deck is straight where the blade spindles mount. Regards Phil.

I have a Craftsman Lawn tractor. Blade leaves grass uncut.


Hi Tom,
Check your spindle shafts for loose play. If your bearings are worn out and sloppy, the belts pull the spindle to one side and an angle cut results... close cut grass at outer edge and high in center will leave this grass trail you are describing. I'd replace the bearings next year for sure.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

I have a 19hp craftsman 42 deck. It has two blades. It does not cut the grass in the center. It leaves a strip uncut. What adjustment should I do


You may be running too fast on ground speed for the mower deck to cut completely. It may be time for some new blades. The blades may be worn down to where they are shorter than when they were first put on.

42 inch craftsman. Replaced bades and now have a row of uncut grass in the center of cut.


OOPS! I hate to tell you but you most likely put new blades on that were too short. Check your manual and get the proper length blades. If you still have the old ones, check them against the new ones and you will see that they are shorter resulting in the uncut grass in the center.
