You rely on your Swisher riding mower and tractor to leave your lawn looking beautiful and tidy. If you realize that it's not cutting the grass evenly, it can be disappointing. Fortunately, there are a few simple troubleshooting tasks you can do yourself to keep your riding mower cutting perfectly.
If you look over the cutting from your riding mower and realize each line looks a bit like slanted stair steps, chances are your mower is uneven. Check the mowing deck to be sure it's properly aligned. Take a look at the tires as well. If they're not inflated evenly, you may end up with crooked mowing. Re-inflate the tires, and see if that solves the problem.
If your mowing pattern has odd streaks in it, your mower may have a very dull blade. The blade is one of those riding mower parts that needs regular care and replacement. Sharpen your blade regularly to keep your lawn looking good, and replace it with a new blade when you bring your riding mower out of storage each spring.
If you've checked the tires and mowing deck and replaced the blade, but your mower is still cutting grass unevenly, you may need to move to the next level of lawn tractor repair help. Check the mandrel assembly if you hear noises coming from the mower engine and notice continued uneven cutting. The mandrel assembly may need to be replaced.
