    I am getting ridges/uneven areas when I turn corners with my walkbehinds. Also, when I am on a slope, the lower side tends to cut a little too low? What am I doing wrong?

    the slope has to do with tire pressure. raise your tire pressure, the weight of the machine is flexing the tire over the rim.

    as for the cornering. perhaps you've got deck build up effecting the suction?

    Thanks for the tip...I'll give the tires more pressure and try cleaning the deck!
