    I would guess it is bent as everything else on it has been. When they are stamped at the factory they are flat along the bottom edge. Roger

    Thank You I was gushing that’s the way it should be . I should start looking for a different deck. I would like To get rid of this one and find a X’s 400 or 700 with 4x4 NO AWS. I don’t like the AWS For mowing. The only time it helps is. I n the winter when I slid off the road it helps to get out. But sometimes you get hung up on the snow with the rear steering linkage
