    my 36 bobcat was leaving a "mohawk" on every yard, had to double cut everything. been to the shop twice, and my guy is very knowledgable, but he couldnt figure this one out. i saw many threads on this before, so i thought i would share how i corrected it. raised the front end a bit, it got better, raised it more, better yet, raised it more, problem solved. simple enough, hope it helps.

    thanx john(do u know, u have the same name as a bathroom?), but the mower was pitched the way the dealer said it should be. he measured everything from front to back, everything was "perfect" according to specs. now, my 48 is pitched the same exact way, and cuts like a dream, this 36 didnt.

    Bobbygedd--How much of a pitch did you have before and how much of a pitch was there after all the adjustments. Just curious.

    lifted the front 3/4 inch to correct it. before, the front was pitched 1/8 lower than the back.
