    Before the last couple of months it was fine though?
    Here is a list of items we need to make sure are ok...

    Cut Quality Suggestions
    1. Blades sharp, straight, and balanced.
    2. Blade tips even with the next blade.
    3. Underside of deck clean and unrestricted.
    4. Proper tire pressure in all tires.
    5. Operator using mower at full throttle.
    6. Deck is level from side to side and the blade tips are
    a 1⁄4” higher in the back.
    7. Engine RPM’s set correctly.
    8. Deck drive belt tension set correctly.
    9. Electric clutch isn’t slipping?
    10. Slow ground speed.
    A. Depending on type of grass mowed and how much is being
    cut off.
