    I have a exmark metro 36" that I am having a problem with. It cuts fine when Im going forward but when I turn to the right or left my mower scalps the lawn on the same side that I push the brake. So if I turn right it scaple the lawn on the left side of the mower during the turn. This just started about a couple of days ago. Can anyone tell me whats wrong with it?

    ck air pressure on all four tires,another thing is have you had a lot of rain lately? soft ground can cause this to, need to slow down on turns

    only explaination for that problem. See it all the time.

    Depending how old it is, it might have semi pneumatic fronts. Check rear drive tires. Should be 25-30lbs, depending on your terrain.
