    I have a wright 36 hydro walk behind ! bought it new about 7 years ago! last summer the mower started cutting bad. Like the grass is pused over instead of cut clean. Tall grass is worse having to go over the spot 2 to 3 times. I have changed to every kind of blade high lift ,mulching, factory, that didnt fix it. Next I REPLACED THE ARM BUSHINGS ON THE DECK TO THE WHEELS. Then the wheels and bairings. New belt! One new pulley. New spindle that was making a racket this spring on the discharge side ! Took it to bob lawerance power eq in asheville (a wright dealer ) told them to fix what ever it was ! They charged me 450.00 for 2 hydro hoses belt ,arm tensioner under the cover! No dice! I have took the cover off while We mow Dont see any problems ! When you cut it left the corner seems to miss a 3 inch wide strip. I have had it . Anyone got any ideas. Compression check had one cyl. at 70lbs and one at 60ish.

    Is it possible the deck is warped? How about the clutch?

    Blade Belt tension?

    I'm sorry, I just don't know what else to think, other than maybe it's the wrong blade (too short).

    PTo clutch would be a good guess, belt tension, wrong belt maybe? Order the belt from wright.
