    Its the toro 32in floating deck with the sigle blade, if its leaving a strip of grass down the middle, do yall think its because the blade is bent, or thats just the type of cut it leaves

    my guess is that the blade is dull or travel speed is too fast

    Blade could be dull or the blade belt is slipping.

    that is what i am thinking. i have never been 100% happy with the cut of the machine. it has left a streak of cut grass clippings on the right side from the first day i owned it. i had a thread on here about. we tried everything. gator blade, increased the rpms to just below max, slowing the speed of cut down, increasing the height of cut so theres more nap for the clippings to be pushed into. i just deal with it and make sure i keep the right side of the deck on the side of uncut grass clippings when i use it. i have a walker now and only use the toro on like 3 yards and its annoying everytime i have to use it. im highly considering a wright
