Tony you may be cutting too much too soon. Try running over the grass slowly with the back guard opened slightly so any grass can still spill onto the ground. When youv'e done one run put the grass box on and go over half a width of the mower at a time but start on a reasonable height.

I have a Sears 22 inch lawn mower, model #917.376070, Serial number 121906M-029886. I recently purchased and installed a new blade from the Sears parts store in Milwaukee (part no. 917-141114) and...


The blade only cuts on the outer 4 inches of the blade rotation(diameter). As the mower moves forward, it cuts the full width of the deck. If sprigs of grass are missed or excessive vibration is present, you may have a bent crankshaft. Check and be careful, ejection of the blade hazard exist.

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.

I have a Craftsman Lawn tractor. Blade leaves grass uncut.


Hi Tom,
Check your spindle shafts for loose play. If your bearings are worn out and sloppy, the belts pull the spindle to one side and an angle cut results... close cut grass at outer edge and high in center will leave this grass trail you are describing. I'd replace the bearings next year for sure.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

If the grass is very tall (more than 10") you will have to slow down to less than 1 mph, if you have a mulch kit on this unit, remove it to get the grass out as quickly as possible. Also, sharp blades & a level deck are important.

Airens Zoom 1944 ZTR Blades Slow Down In Bahaia Grass


You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.

Very little grass is shooting into the bag to fill it


Hello monica_skinn:

If the Underside of the Deck is Clean and the Blades are Tightened Properly, then the Problem is Caused by the Blade Lifts being Worn or the Blades are Not a High Lift (Bagger Blade) Blades.
A Bagger Blade has a Very High Lift Ear on the Backside of the Blade Across from the Cutting Edge. This Extra Lift is What Gives the Extra Lift and Throw (by increasing air Flow under the Mower) the Grass gets to be Bagged.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully
