mower cutting bad

HI,
I have a sears 18.5 lawn tractor with a 46 inch easy mulch deck. It takes 3 blades. It seems that when cutting, it is leaving a strip uncut. I know all 3 blades are turning and blades sharp. I can figure out what is wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions.
Thanks

You may have a bent blade/spindle/deck. With the engine OFF turn the blades so the tips match up to each other then verify that the cutting edges are in the same plane, then turn one around and check the other end. They should all line up with each other.

Some 3 blade mowers use two differance lenght baldes. Two longs blades on the out side and a shorter blade in the middle. Last summer we had a man come in our shop with a ploblem like that and he had the blades wrong.
