  • I doubt the mower has any connection to the dead spot in the lawn. Aug 30, 2020 at 15:12

Not sure of the exact reason, but I saw this on a lawn I maintained (with a heavy mower).

What I did then was for a few months to mow an overlap of half a strip at the edge then continue as usual. This was to rest the balding patches.

I changed to continually overlapping every round so the wheels didn't compress the same place all the time.

After about 9 months the lines disappeared.

I never had the problem with my small electric mowers.

  • After few days of good watering. The grass start to recover and there is no other signs of fungi issue.
