I recently changed blades on my 3235 Cadet, 54" deck. When I removed them I noticed that they were all cutting on one side of each blade. Is this due to the deck being tilted down slightly in the front or possibly being not level side to side?

Thanks

No, blades were not bent unless they came from factory that way. The whole rig only has 4.5 hours on it. Never hit anything. I changed the blades to a set of highlift for leaf pickup, thats when I noticed the paint being removed on one side of each blade. One blade has a little removed on the opposite end, the other two only on one end. Checked tire pressure. No extreme vibration.Blades are off, so i'm going to check them. Only other thing I can think of is the spindles aren't square with each other.
Thanks

Paint should only come off of one side of the blade because they rotate in 1 direction!

A blade has two cutting edges. Paint was off on one side, like it was cutting on one side only.
