Is that pic an ICD deck? No way it can be, almost looks like he was mowing at half throttle or something.

Yea, brand new ICD deck! what makes you say half throttle?

The only issue I can see is the lower cutting on the left side, which imo is due to the suspension. I havent seen this bad a result from any other ZTR. However Im led to beleive this is due to the is2500 being a bad make, with a heavy diesel in too light duty a frame.

I see the dealer not setting up the deck correctly. I bought a walkbehind brand new last year and the deck was way off. Nothing surprises me from dealers.

When i bought my IS3100Z my dealer didn't set it up the way i wanted it or close to what i believe to be correct. None the less it still cut better than that pic.

Maybe it's the type of grass (what is it, hard to tell). Was there a chute blocker or a mulch kit on this? Just looks like there was no vacuum on the cut.

Yea could be I supposes others have mentioned. bit of a coincidence, but it would also explain why its cutting in so deep if the deck hasnt been levelled.

It's not from the suspension you can get that out of your head... To me it looks like a bent blade...

If a bent blade was going to cause this type of cut then It would vibrate the deck like crazy, would ruin the spindle in no time. that wasnt happening.

If not the suspension, the only other thing is tyres being lower on one side of the machine, or deck not levelled correctly when setup.

The deck most certainly does move with the suspension. I think you may need to take another look at it.
