Homeowners feel a justified sense of pride in their beautifully kept lawns whenever they finish upkeep with a Murray riding mower. If your mower suddenly seems to be cutting unevenly, there's no need to settle for an unkempt lawn. Here are some simple steps you can take to restore your mower's usual reliable performance.
Uneven cutting can result from an uneven mower deck or unevenly inflated tires. Either of these issues is most likely the cause of the problem if the uneven cutting looks like slanted stair steps. Take a few moments to check your mower's tires and deck, and adjust them if necessary.
Streaks in the lawn after mowing usually indicate a problem with the riding mower's blades, one of the key riding mower parts required for a well-kept lawn. Sharpen the blades if they're dull, and replace the blades at least once a year or whenever you see uneven cutting. Other yearly preventative maintenance needed to keep your mower running at peak performance includes replacing the air filter, oil filter, spark plug, fuel filter and oil, as well as checking the ignition, battery and carburetor.
If the uneven cutting is combined with an unfamiliar noise from the mower deck, you may have a problem with the tractor mandrel assembly. Call Sears PartsDirect for lawn tractor repair help to replace this vital part.
