If it's like mine (MM 875), it has a plastic "clutch" that has little edges on it that broke off when I was chopping sticks with the mower ;-) Went to the local B&D place and got a new one for less than $3.

But now I'm worrying about the nut holding the blade on -- if I try to get it good and tight, the plastic "clutch" spins around off-kilter... Funny how I never even looked at the blade after I bought the mower used, but never worried about the blade being loose and flying off.

Mower is electric. cord is fine. was mowing great, had it on highest blade level due to high grass. just quit completely. blade and chute are not clogged. there is power to mower.


If you were cutting long grass it sounds like you may have burnt the motor out. It may have over heated. they are not made to cut long grass. You don't say whether the motor runs but not the blades if this is the case you may have sheared the shear pin in the blade assembly.

When I engage the blades on my ez4824 the blades intermittently stop cutting particularly in higher grass. Do you think this is a loose belt problem? Thanks.


That is the most likely cause of the problem - taller and thicker grass the blades encounter more resitance and the drive belt slips and it doesn't cut. This would likely cause a juddering of the machine when it occurs.

Hope this helps.

Mower is not shooting the grass out when using the mulcher. I have to clean the grass out when cutting the grass.


Maybe the grass you are trying to MUCLH is a little too high. Mulching doesn;t really cause the machine to "shoot" out the grass the way conventional cutting with a conventional blade does....it is the type of blade that when spinning, creates air pockets under the deck that allow the blades to keep cutting the grass over and over. Switch to a different blade to get it to shoot out.

Lawnmower blade turns but does not cut


You have either bent the blade and its to high to cut or you need to sharpen the blade with a grinder.
