Bolens riding mower deck wobbley and deck problems

i have a almost new bolens riding mower with a 38 inch cut but the deck is very wobbley and it doesnt cut all the way out to the front wheel(line the front wheel up with the edje of the deck and thats where its supposed to cut to) but this one cuts to about 5-6 inches inside the wheel making it take so long to mow does the deck need adjusted? or a bent blade?? o and also it has mulching kit and blades on it.

So it only cuts about 32"? Not sure I understand. Also, by wobbly... you mean it just moves side to side easily? If so, that's normal. If it moves a lot on it's own, then no, that's not normal. Is it shaking or vibrating?

I'm wondering if you have the correct blades on the mower deck. I'm wondering if one or all the blades are shorter than they should be.

Some are made that way.
When they are engauged they may straighten out a bit. Have you got a new/old one to compare to??
