    I have a Dixie Chopper XW2200 with a 60" deck. I am having trouble with an uneven cut even though my deck is level. Any suggestions?? I only happens on uneven ground. :help:

    Check tire pressure, set your gauge wheels lower or change mowing direction. Almost impossible to get a level cut on unlevel ground.

    good luck

    The wider the deck, the more it will cut uneven on uneven ground. You need a smaller cut mower to cut rough ground and then it will still cut uneven in places
