I'm experiencing a little bit of lay over from my Lazer EPS. It's toward the left side of the center of the center spindle (as you're sitting on the mower). It's causing the grass to lay down a little as it gets pushed forward causing a stripe. Has anyone else experienced this? I've checked the blades and spindles and all blades are kept razor sharp. I run tri-level mulching blades on top of DC high lifts. I hope someone can help. Thanks.

Check the bottom of you deck for bent metal or maybe a stick lodged in there.

I posted on this a while back. Underneath the deck, behind it is a guard plate,like 4 inches long. Seems to only happen on certain grass or terrain.

Thanksfor the ideas, but uponclose examination, I found that it's i little bit of grass that's not cutting as clean. It is tending to lay over a little, and cuts just a little longer than the rest. I thought it was perhaps belt slippage but the rest of the center cut seems to cut just fine. It's just that little bit to the left side of center spindle that has to get pushed forward.
