    I'm demo-ing a Lazer HP this weekend and am getting an uneven cut, strips about where the blades meet for the most part, but just a plain, uneven cut with lots of straglers. Is this typical?

    Also, is it possible to mow at full speed? When I do, the cut looks really bad.

    I like the machine, comfort, speed, no clumps... an will probably buy one, but is there a fix for the poor cutting quality?

    Statman,

    Are you side discharging or mulching?

    Statman,

    If I had to guess the deck belt is slipping. Once in a while on a new machine we can over tighten the deck idler pivot and cause some excess friction resulting in poor belt tension and belt slippage. Shoot me a pm to terry.eckert@exmark.com with the name of your dealer and I'll have them check it out ASAP.

    Thanks,

    Terry

    Thanks for the response, I'm planning to take it back tomorrow and pick mine up. I'll tell him about the cut.
