I have a couple year old relatively inexpensive Troy Built lawn tractor, and I'm just not happy with how it cuts. It's almost as if the blades are cutting at different heights, and I don't see anything obvious that would be causing this.

I think I'm leaning back towards a new tractor, but I'll probably mess around with mine a little more before I drop $1500+ on a new mower. Heck, I'm not even the one mowing the lawn, as my son does it, so it's not like I'm looking for something to save time or is easier to use.
Do the tires all have the same amount of air in them?

First thing I checked. Looks like I'll be crawling around on my back this weekend, checking under the deck. I need to sharpen the blades anyway.

I just thought of something as I was typing this. I bought a new blade last year to replace one that my kid bent to Hell when he ran over the water meter cover. I wonder if the design is slightly different, resulting in a different cutting height? I may be onto something...

My wife always offers to mow but things like this and the lines not being straight always lead me to say no, lol.

You may be on to something for sure, it could possibly have a different offset from the bottom of the deck.

Ric,

I got to thinking, I wonder if your son bent the shaft when he hit that water cover.

Don't say that!

I don't feel any out of the ordinary vibration when the blades are turning, so I don't think that's what it is. I noticed Monday that the deck appears to angle down toward the front for some reason (though that would affect both blades), so I'll be looking at that this weekend, too. If I can get this mower squared-away, it may allow me to look harder at a new AVR sooner rather than later!

It just popped into my head while mowing tonight....I didnt have my headphones on for some reason so the mind was wandering.

Since this is the yard work thread, I figured it'd be better to bump this than create a new thread just to ask my question, which is... Is this plant dead or can it be salvaged?

Anyone ever have to deal with Japanese Stiltgrass? We're having a hell of a job containing it on our property. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I've been fighting crab grass majority of my adult life. When we moved last year. Our yard was mainly infested with weeds because the house was vacant for quite some time. Did lots of yard work since February from weeding, to placing pavers in the back yard. I'm proud to say our yard looks a lot better than it was before. Can't wait for next spring to see how even thicker our grass will be. I still have a few places on the side of the house where I need to remove the crab grass and place new sod. I'll try to get that done during the fall where it's cooler.

Year 1 - 2015 was all about minor interior work around the house.

Year 2 - 2016 is all about the front and back yard looking more presentable
