Your out feed table isn’t level, i don’t mean buble level, i mean like paralel to the other table. I just found out that mine wasn’t level either but the oposite way it kept sniping the end of the board. To fix it you will need loosen the table mounting bolts and shim the ones that need it using washers, cardboard or pop can material. Lay a good straight level on the beds to see how far they are off using a feeler gage between the table and the level. And before you finish you may need to adjust the knives or cutter head.
