    My 36-inch Bobcat is leaving a strip of grass between the blades. I am running doubles(both gators) I have....checked blades, changed blades, checked the deck, nothing bent, made sure the deck was clean. Going slower doesn't help. Maybe a bent spindle? Any other ideas?

    Thanks

    I used to hav the same problem with a MTD rider before I got into the REAL Lawn biz. I changes all 3 of the blades, and everything was better.

    Have you tried a set of brand new blades? If the blades are too short you can get this problem.

    Is you deck one that needs to remain "timed?"
