I took a plumb and set it on the bolt then went around the deck, it is not even close to being round, there are a lot of warped areas.  It was like this out of the box, and I haven't seen much of a change.  Is this normal and ok?

Hi David,
Thanks for asking. The mower deck is not perfectly round. In fact, the section that is the  most flat is designed that way to properly direct the grass clippings. However, if you want to make sure that your mower deck is OK, consider sending an email with a photo to so we can all be sure.
