    Deck will not raise to higher levels for taller grass. It pretty much sits flush with the ground at the moment.

Riding mower decks are typically canted (offset) to avoid this issue. Double check to verify the new blades are the same length as the original blades.
Not all mower blades are created equally, universal replacement blades do not adhere to the same standards as OEM blades for size, hardness or many additional standards built into the OEM blades when the mower deck was designed.

Why does it bog down in grass maybe 6 " high?


The likely cause of this is that the grass is too high for your mowers deck. You should try just mowing about 1/3 of the blade at a time (if you can) until you reach your desired length, so if you grass is 6" high, only take off about 2" at first to reduce the stress on your mower. Set your mower deck to it's highest setting and give it a shot.

Also, be sure that the blades are sharp, and if you don't have mulching blades, you should get some! Grass this high will leave long clippings on the lawn which can suffocate the grass, mulching blades will chop up the clippings into smaller pieces, which is beneficial for your lawn!

Finally, make sure you aren't mowing wet grass. If you mow when the grass is wet the clippings can stick together and clump up under the mowing deck which will cause excess strain to the mower and maybe even cause it to shut off.

If none of this works, you may want to use a string trimmer to remove the first two inches of your grass and then continue mowing as normal!

Hope this helps! Happy Mowing!

jack the tractor (using a tractor jack) or remove the deck, measure the blade tips against each other where they meet in the center of the deck and see if they are the same tip to tip. Bearing wear, a bent deck or blade can make them cut at different heights in the center.

During mowing grass will gather underside of deck leaving 2 streaks on r and l if you turn deck off grass will fall out of deck before restarting u need tgo move or mower will stall from grass build up...


There are a couple of things going on here. First, the blades are likely worn out and need replaced. As they wear and loose some length they can leave a trail. Second, if you have regular blades on a deck configured (by having discharge plugged) for mulching and you are using regular blades, then you can have a problem with build up. Third, you can have clumping problems if the grass is not dry when you are mowing.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Deck will not shed the grass . the grass has to be cleaned after each mowing, lawn is not mowed when wet,


The only way to shred the grass while mowing is to have a pair of mulching blades on your mower, they work, but they wear out fast. They do in Florida anyway with all the sand. And don't for the grass to look a hayfield to mow it. You have to keep at it. Hope this helps.
