    A friend of mine had the same problem. The pitch on his deck was off. It's funny, because his dealer said the same thing. So he called John Deere, the main office and they said they will fix it. So he took it back for one more time. And they fixed it after several days. They wouldn't even give him anything to mow with. He had only had it about 4 or 5 months I believe. His was this same model. He will post later for more info.(WPLE) is his name on lawnsite.

    My 737 was doing the same thing. The cut looked as if the front blade was cutting lower than the outsides. The problem was the pitch. There was about a 1" difference from front to back where there is supposed to be a 1/8". Had trouble getting my dealer to do anything about it so called John Deere and then they where glad to fix it but I was down about a week just for that little problem. Check the pitch.

    I have 2 737's and have never had any cutting problems. But I would, like the others have said, check the pitch. ALSO, check your tire pressure. It may look level but when u sit on it it may be enough to throw it off. I'm also assuming that the blades are sharp and not bent. Also the correct blades too.

    which jd office number did you use?i feel like im getting poor service from my dealer because when i talked to their service manager today,he said that they had a lot of farm equipment to work on first.the cut is almost like the blades are beating the grass instead of cutting it.also on somewhat uneven yardsthere are really noticeable "ridges" between cutting swaths.

    I have a 757 and never have had problems with it. What blades are you running are they the right size? Do you run the mulch kit? Have you checked the to see if the deck is 1/8" to 1/4" higher in the back. Also,you need to find a new dealer. I've always had good service from JD but the dealers I use don't sell farm equipment, strictly turf dealers.
