Is there any adjustments for side to side height? I have the self propelled 21" model. The total height adjustment is quick and easy, however the mower deck isn't level and results in the mower scalping on one side. Am I missing something? Also is there anyway that the speed of the blade can be increased? The.mower does a much better job when it senses a load condition that causes it to speed up. The resulting cut and mulching is superior to what is produced at the the normal operating speed?

Level deck and side to side height is not adjustable and sounds like a problem.  Check the front wheels and axle from underneath the deck and make sure the front axle is tight and secure.

Agree the mower does a better job at higher speed but currently there is no way to manually adjust the RPM.  If this is a recent purchase you could return it and check out the new dual battery mower and see if it works better for you with its increased power.
