My z5426 has allways left grass behind,i have to cut my lawn twice


Are your blades sharp? Are they lined up so they do not leave grass in between them as they spin?
Is your cutting deck level or is one side higher than the other.
These are all things that could cause long grass to remain.
Some times a bent blade will do this also.
I even had a lawn mower come in and the blades were installed up side down. He wondered why it would not cut right.

Not mulching


When is the last time you sharpened or replaced the blade?

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!

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.

I have a single cylinder Ranch King riding lawn mower. Model # 133K6796205. Bought in 1993. I need to know what type of oil to put in it? I am also having a problem with the grass collector. Even if...


Hello You can use straight 30 w oil most engine manufactures agree for summer equipment now for winter where it gets cold like in a snow blower the request you to use 5-W30. As far as your grass collector check your blades #1 to see if they are the correct blades for that mower. #2 yes the engine will overheat as the clumped of grass will slow down the blades causing more load on the engine.This is not a uncommon problem wet or damp grass will clump up even if you do not have a grass collector,it will stick under the deck again causing problems.Hopefully this helps.
Thanks Ben

I have a Simplicity Zero-Turn 20 hp 50" cut. Just recently when mowing I have "clumps" of grass all over the yard. Any idea what would cause this? Also, the mower is supposed to stipe the lawn - I have...


Hi, well you have the cutter too close to the ground, try raising it up a couple of notches.
Now as for the "clumps" on the lawn. Well IF you mean GROWING clumps, that's because the mower is dumping the cut grass in a pile, somewhat, and that's adding nutrients to that particular Patch, and it simply grows faster because it's got more "Food".

If you mean, CUT grass patches, then again your Cutter is Too Close to the ground, and it's dragging the cut grass, and then when it gets too much, it is "packeting" the cut grass, every now an again when it builds up and is left in "piles" instead of being evenly distributed, and driven into the ground, behind the mower.

Did you buy this mower from a dealer and built up and checked over or did you buy it in a box and put it together yourself? i suspect you probably bought it in a box and put it together yourself as it sounds as though the engine isnt reving high enough. Briggs and stratton engines are well known to come out of the box with the engines reving much lower than they should be. you will need to check and adjust the high speed engine revs to approx 2900-3100 rpm

Poulan Pro 22" does not mulch!


When you mulch you can only cut 1/3 of the grass off. If the grass is 3" high you can only cut 1" off.If you are cutting more grass of than you are leaving there is no place to hide the clippings.A general rule is if you notice clippings and clumps beginning to lay set the mower up one notch at a time until the clippings are hardly noticeable.If you like a real low cut then mulching is probably not for you,you will probably want to bag the grass instead.Hope this helps.
