Mower skips...

My 700 series John Deere has had a pretty uneven cut recently and I don't know what the cause of it would be. Would it be bad blades? I have had the bearings and spindles all replaced as well as the belts. It still cuts very uneven..? What could be the cause of this?

What does the deck pitch mean? The guys at my local John Deere dealer leveled it at the start of this year and have at least once every season since I've had it. It still cuts terrible though and it leaves a small string of mulch on the right side where the power flow blower is.

I would shoot it and put it out of its misery but that's only because it's a John Deere and thus it deserves an honorable death.

One thing you might check is make sure all the blades are mounted right side up and correctly.
Not saying the guys who replaced your spindles forgot to put a blade back on or that one went on upside down, but then again most anything is possible.

You running the MOD Deck or 7 Iron if your running the MOD deck that is your issue.

That cannot be justifiable the new Deere's and 7 Iron decks are at the top of the game. You must of had a MOD deck to they suck period like Gravelys XF1 decks did.
