    Might just be the pictures but it looks like your middle blade is cutting lower on the left side.

    hey big, i have to agree with albery... something looks a little off with the cut of the blades. looks, to me, like it's cutting on a slight angle... could be a bent or even loose blade. also, make sure your deck is CLEAN on big $/valued customers lawns... clumps and/or thatch will wreak havoc right quick if not blown off and/or FINELY mulched.

    are you mowing with gator (mulching) blades or whatever came with the machine? you may want to look into "magnum" (heavier) blades... kept sharp the magnums' give the best cut! if you mow when wet/damp, stay away from the gators they will clump no matter how clean the deck is! otherwise... looks good for a seasoned veteran like you. keep up the good work... my hats off to you. good luck. have a good one.

    lookey there, top notch. I love wide open spaces with the ztr, lawns like this make it feel like I'm almost stealing :)

    Your truck and trailer look super nice! Is it a powerstroke?
