My guess is that the spindals may be worn and need to be replaced.

here is a question that could tell me what is it. does the grass look like siding or does it look like missing the 2 rows. because it could just be your going to fast and cutting to much off.
I agree with this post. i have had similiar problems with my troy-bilt...turns out it was that my center blade was a lil loose and my blades had become too dull. another factor is speed as in the previous post. if you go too fast you wont get an even cut. usually the residential zero turns arent made to cut exceedingly fast like the more commercial zero turns. They do get the job done though. try goin a lil slower if all the above is good. hope this helps but its just an agreement with the previous post. also...ck the tire pressure. it can cause this as well. not really bad but every now and then it can do this.

Yeah, we checked all that with my mechanic, we checked the spindles, check the blades, adjusted the deck, checked the tire pressure

Found some answers here, maybe they may help?

Another thought, do you sharpen your blades? If so, an unbalanced blade could also cause what your seeing.

Yes, I sharpen my blades every week, they get dull in like 3 or 4 days depending on my work. I have also tried getting an original set of blades since I had bought some mulching ones before. I'll check that out and read it
