You can count on your Western Tool riding mower and tractor to keep your large expanse of lawn looking beautiful and save you time and labor when it comes to yard maintenance. On rare occasions, you may find your riding mower cutting grass unevenly. When that happens, run through this list of troubleshooting tips to get your mower back into tip-top condition.
To diagnose what kind of problem may be causing your mower's cutting problem and what riding mower parts you might need to fix it, start by taking a look at the cut grass. If the uneven grass looks like slanted stair steps, take a look at your tires. Uneven inflation can tilt the mower deck, resulting in poor cutting performance. Re-inflate your tires, and measure them to make sure they are even before your next mowing session.
You should replace your riding mower's blade every year. Many owners choose to handle this maintenance task in the spring while getting ready for a new season. Look at the grass to determine if the blade is the problem. If you see streaks, it's time to sharpen or replace the mower's blade.
Another typical cause of uneven cutting is a problem with the mower's mandrel assembly. If you notice a noise coming from the mowing deck, call a professional for lawn tractor repair help to determine if you need to replace the mandrel assembly.
