Adjust your mower deck wheels
Mower deck gauge wheels should be properly adjusted to prevent scalping grass on uneven terrain. The bottom of the wheels should sit approximately 1/8-1/2 of an inch from the ground, depending on your cutting height.
Make sure your mower deck is level from side-to-side and up-and-down for a precise, even cut throughout your lawn.
Check your lawn mower tire pressure
Check tire pressure and make sure it’s the same correct operating pressure on both sides of the riding lawn equipment for a uniform, level cut. Uneven tire pressure from side-to-side can create an uneven cut.
