ferris is700z cutting problems

I bought a new Ferris is700z and it was cutting great, now recently it's leaving 2 strips of pushed down grass...deck has been cleaned and new blades put on and it's still doing it. The best way for me to explain it is it looks like tire marks going over the looks like it's cutting some, but pushing 2 lines of grass down. Thanks for any help.

Did you hit anything while mowing?, or got it caught going over a curb, or snagged the deck on the trailer? That could disrupt the airflow causing less vacuum.

What kind of grass are you cutting? Is it possible it has to do with moisture or lack there of in the ground? I am seeing something similar with my bermuda.

Posts: 292 when you put these blades on, did you put the blades edge to edge and see if they where unlevel at all. Like a bent spindle shaft? Besides that- is there any pictures you can post? For it to start cutting like that all of the sudden is odd. ICD Decks do not have to be pitched 1/4 twords and you didn't say it was cutting higher on one side than the other so the leads me to believe that its not uneven. But if you post pics that would help out a lot
