If I had a new mower that wasn't cutting good I'd take it back to my dealer if I've already checked the obvious: tire pressure, caster spacers the same, blade spacers the same, blades sharp, spindles good, deck clean and rpm correct.
Who knows then, I was throwing out guesses. I would assume if a blad is totally unbalanced, not just a little like you said yours are sometimes, then I would suspect the blade wood "wobble" while spinning which I think would create a nasy uneven cut.
If the man sharpens his own blades and they are just a little off, then he can cross that guess off the list.
