Lawn mowers have been a blessing for homeowners because the first patent for a reel mower in the early 1800s. Ever since then, mowers have become more advanced and manufacturers have jumped into the mowing game, such as Huskee. Huskee’s line includes mowers and lawn tractors; the business also manufactures outdoor power equipment. Mowers need regular maintenance to perform while they’ve created the chore of mowing less labor-intensive. Cutting troubles, including scalping cuts and streaks, may occur because of user error or problems with the tractor or mower itself.
Inspect your yard for hills or bumps; particularly in areas where your mower is scalping. Even tiny hills or bumps can get the mower blades to scalp the grass to ground.

Level out bumps or hills. Use a shovel to dig bumps and hills and level them.

Leveling the Deck – Front to back
Park your Huskee tractor on a smooth, flat surface.
Move the lifting lever into the place that is second-to-highest.
Rotate the mower blades as parallel to the tractor.
Gauge the distance into the floor from the base of the tip of the blade and then measure the distance in the base of the rear tip of this blade into the floor. The front tip distance should be 3/8 and between 1/4 inches less than the base.
Locate lock nut and the nut on the stabilizer bracket or, on certain models the flange nut, on your mower. If armed, loosen the jam nut. Tighten the lock nut to boost the deck’s front . Practice once the deck is leveled by re-tightening the jam nut.
Leveling the Deck – Negative to Negative
Park your Huskee on a flat, even surface and set the lift lever in the second-highest place. Until they are perpendicular to the tractor rotate the blades.
Measure the distance from the exterior of the blade tip into the floor, then measure the distance into the floor from the exterior of the tip that is ideal. These measurements should be the same.
Loosen — do not remove — the hex cap screw on the left bracket. The hex cap screw can be found on the mount just above the deck.
Turn the adjustment screw — situated behind the hex cap screw — with a wrench. Clockwise turns lift the blade up; lower turns the blade down.
Quantify the blades to be certain they are ; should not, continue adjusting and measuring until the sides of the blades are equivalent.
Other Scalping Causes
Slow down while pushing your Huskee walk-behind or while forcing your Huskee lawn tractor. The deck can be caused by Moving too quickly. On a tractor, adjust the throttle to a lower rate.
Increase your mower deck into a place to reduce scalping. Most cool-season grasses are meant to be cut at 2 to 3 inches tall. Some grasses might be cut too short can harm the yard, although shorter.
