Many blade has grass side stamped into the metal.

You want the cutting to be on the leading edge either way; otherwords, the cutting sharp edge leading. Most blades also turn clockwise when viewed from the top and counter clockwise when viewed from the grass side

When going over deep grass there is a metal sound. It's like the blade is hitting against something. Is this a common problem with this model? How could I fix this issue?


Hi Andrew:
It is quite possible that the blade is bent or the metal "grass discharge guide" has been damaged.
If you have a pickup truck handy and you can put the mower facing outward on the tailgate, this procedure is easier.
- remove the spark plug lead to ensure that the mower cannot accidentally start.
- Push the handle down so that the mower is tilted back and the underside of the cutting deck is exposed.
- slowly rotate the blade and see where it contacts (or has been contacting any metal parts.
- remove and replace the blade if it has been bent. (They can be straightened but it is not recommended)
- Use 2 hammers (one as a "dolly") to straighten or repair any bent sheet metal.
- Replace the plug lead and go cut grass.
Cheers

Why does my riding mower die when put in gear or engage the blades


Check out the grass box safety switch. if not fully depressed it will apply brakes to the blades when in gear. Most mowers are designed with a safety switch to stop the blades, or forward motion if the grass box is not fitted correctly.

The blade on my Flymo 360 glidemaster has the ends of the blade bent slightly do I fit them facing up or down ?


if you look at the blade,it should say "grass side" on one side. Mount it so you can see the words.

Uncut grass in center & higher grass cut on right.


Hi, this may sound obvious but make sure the new blade is the same type as the old one and make sure it is not fitted upside down. Spin the blades and make sure the tips are level with each other, this will tell you if the deck is straight where the blade spindles mount. Regards Phil.

Blade slows down when grass gets thick


Hello,

The reason the blade slows down when the grass gets thick is simply because the mechanism operating the blade is weak and cannot move fast when on thick grass.

I suggest you troubleshoot the mower. After that, the blade should work fine when the grass gets thick.

Also, some mowers normally gets slow when grass gets thick, so after troubleshooting, if the mower does the same, then you already know it has to be slow when trying to cut thick grasses.

Take care

I have a MTD Pro riding lawn mower that I


the only way to fix it is fit the right blades
they have fitted the wrong blade's to it,,,
the blades should overlap when cutting the grass they cannot crash into each other as there are (timed up) not to do that the new blades they fitted are to short so you have no over lap on the gutters that leaves a strip of grass left uncut between the blades,,
call them out to put this stupid mistake right,,,

I have a MTD garden tractor with 3 bag catcher and the shute constantly plugs up. I mow once a week but it's like there isn't enough vaccum to blow the grass into the bags. I have my blades with the bent...


bent part of the blades need to be facing up towards your deck which creates a vacuum and allows a better lift to throw the grass in the bag When bagging blades should be labeled as high lift blades which are designed for bagging . Also which you probably already know its better to bag when the grass is NOT damp.
Hope this helps your issue
