    Thanks! If you look at google reviews it looks like others have had the same experience lately. My last run in for parts was good. Actually got Harvey! Break down this time was my fault. Caught a stump in a pine plantation.

    I have since stopped using the mid mount mower due to poor mow quality (lots of scalping) and poor quality. Always loosing parts. Bought a different mower. I added a 60" brush mower and 48" tiller to the tractor. Now I have a use for it but it mostly sits in the shed. Good tractor, poor Mid Mount mower. If I knew I was only getting a tractor I would have bought a larger model. Bought the Yanmar 221 so I could fit in tighter places mowing.

    I moved the deck wheels to the next higher position. This seems to help with the scalping.

    Exactly correct . . If the rollers and wheels are properly set for height, you can't scalp a lawn with a mmm deck unless the ground is heavily washboarded and even then it would be minimal scalping. In addition . . An uneven cut is an indication the blades or blade shafts are bent or not balanced properly . . . Or . . The deck is not leveled properly front to back or left to right or both.
