No stopping and starting, this is from continuous movement. Checked the blades, they seem to be installed according to instructions. They COULD be bent, but hard to tell since they are not straight by design. Mower is 3 weeks old, and wheels adjust all at once from one lever. Lawn IS bumpy, but still......old mower didn't do this.Bent blade or improperly adjusted wheels. To do that though, you'd about have to be doping a lot of starting and stopping where the mower is in one place for a few seconds or more. Have you double checked to make sure the blade isn't on upside down. It happens a lot more often than many realize or want to admit to doing LOL
Yes, the lawn IS bumpy, but previous mower didn't do this, so I'm having a hard time figuring out what's going on. This is continuous movement, no stop-and-start. Changed blades with no real change in the pattern. If it was only from bumps, wouldn't previous mower have done it too?There may be some stopping and starting but it's caused by mowing an uneven surface. The lawn is bumpy, and the wheels are dropping into low spots.
Push down on the handle, taking weight off the front wheels. You will get a more even cut that way.
I don't know why it seems to be an electric mower thing.
Lawn is about 5500 sq/ft. I have no idea what the going rate is here so I don't have a budget in mind. I have seen neighbors getting their lawns leveled here, but they used 100% common sand, which I don't really believe is the best approach. Then what do I know!How many sq ft is this lawn? Do you have interest and budget to fix it right?
Thanks for the info.How to Fix a Bumpy Lawn. Over the years, even a beautiful, lush lawn can become bumpy and uneven. Weeds, earthworms and freezing and thawing conditions are some reasons bumps appear in the lawn. From afar, the yard may still look nice, but walking or sitting on it is uncomfortable.

The rant was NOT directed at you, sorry. I appreciate the information and most likely will follow your advice, the point I was trying to make is no one appreciates being belittled for a lack of knowlege or ability. I know this forum is for people seeking knowlege, or maybe fun for a group of professionals, but it shouldn't get sarcastic as I've seen in many threads here. I am a community leader on another forum, and we never get sarcastic with people, it just isn't called for.
