Default New Cub Cadet XT1 L50 Not Cutting Even

Hello,
I am new to the forum hoping to get some answers on my brand new Cub Cadet XT1 LT50. I have had this mower for a few weeks now and can't get it to cut even. It leaves small streaks of higher grass. Everything has been checked and set to specs, but still nothing helps. Is the deck on the mower a floating deck or fixed? Does that anything to do with it? Could it be my lawn? It's not perfect level but I didn't have this problem when I had a Husqvarna . Any Ideas?

Thanks,
BB

Properly adjusted both front to rear and side to side?
Blades on right side down and not upside down?
Belts adjusted properly?
This info should all be in your manual.

It's under warranty, have the dealer fix it.

If everything is adjusted right I'd check that a blade or spindle isn't crooked. Tire pressures all correct?

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
