    finished my biggest yard and account today.when i loaded up the trailer and stood up and looked down at the yard there it was a striped up un-even cut.could not see it at groung level.customer asked if i hit something in his yard i said looked that way.anyway checked my deck later it was 1 inch to high on one side! lesson learned i will check my deck more often.guess my old 51 year old crispy mind aint as sharp as it was...:hammerhead:

    You know, its kind of hard to say for sure but if I had to take a wild guess, I would say it was probably a lawn mower.:waving:

    So did you fix the problem with the deck??? An inch is quite a difference.

    i can't believe you didn't notice it when you were cutting. 1/4" i can see you overlooking but 1"?

    I remember if I hit a bump with my toro 21 the height adjustment would lower itself a notch. The adjustments were worn out.
