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.
You can always "MacGyver" or "Tim Taylor" anything. Modifications are always being done by some one or another.
Thats how the right thing get made, or invention comes around.
If you think your idea, which sounds like it will, will help you and your problem, go for it.
I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.
Check your tire pressures: 10 psi. for rear tires. 14 psi. for the front.
Note that according to MTD: Making sharp right hand turns. Twin-blade mower decks are designed with
the discharge on the right side and two side-by-side blades. The
side-by-side twin blade decks have the left hand blade positioned
slightly forward and in front of the right blade. This provides cutting
overlap when traveling in a straight line. As a result, the tractor
should mainly operated making primarily left hand turns when cutting.
During left turns this cutting overlap is maintained. If turning right
when, it is possible to negate this overlap and leave an uncut strip.

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.
