just bought a new honda lawnmower from homedepot. it's the self propelled rear wheel drive version. i'm really happy with it, but i noticed the left front tire does not make great contact with grass. SO when i'm moving along the wheels will not even move. anyone have this issue?

If the wheels are adjusted evenly, yet one isn't touching the ground it may mean the deck is bent. I've seen that w/ Toros from HD too. Something to try would be to jostle shake drop from 6" off the ground and just see if the adjusters need to bottom out.

Please verify that the wheel adjusters are all set to the same setting. If they are just have it replaced. Don't fiddle with it or try to live with the difference.

You might have to change the name of it! I know, if i had one of those junkers, i'd have a bunch of pet names for it by now! RJ
