JD STX46 - uneven cutting

Need help...
The mower seems to be uneven. There are three blades under and they are not bent or damaged, but the cut left is uneven. The one side is definitely shorter and there seems to be some grass missed at the edge of the center blades. How do I get the blades level? There are four wheels on the deck. Should they be at the same height? thanks for the help

Go to Deere.com and see what you can find. I didn't see your exact model but there are probably very similar models. You can look at the owner's manual online and get info on how to set up up the side leveling as well as front to back. There are also parts blow ups and listings for your mower. I would suggest getting a Deere leveling gauge. They are simple, cheap, and make leveling easy.

Be sure your tires are inflated properly. If one side is low it will throw everything off. I know from experience.
