    My scag 48 walk behind just isnt cutting level, all air pressure is correct. Is it possible that grassgobbler bent something.

    Have you put new blades on?
    I had some cutting problems and found that my after market blades weren't
    up to specs. picked up a set of Scag blades and fixed the prob.

    How old of a unit is this ?
    If it is pre 95 and manual engagement, the deck may be bent.
    I have seen a bunch of those bend, back then there was not a lot of support brackets and extra plate steel on them.
    Good way to check is to pull the deck cover off and step in the middle of the deck, and watch for warping. Sounds stupid but it works.
    Good Luck.
