    For the past two weeks my BobCat 36" WB is leaving some blades uncut in the center of the deck where the two blades would meet. I've changed blades and still the same.
    I remember it did the same thing last year a few times.
    It's becoming a real pain because I have to go over it twice. :cry:

    Any ideas?

    Thank you!!!

    Blade tips are rounded off? It would have to be pretty extreme to have that happen.

    I had that happen once and the dealer told me it could be the after market blades. Sometimes they are cut just a little shorter and that's why they leave that little strip

    your blades are on upside down.

    Make sure the underneath is cleaned. If my mower gets some build up it really effects the cut.

    make sure the deck is level and has the right pitch too.
