Yes, I recommend that you stay on the mower to keep it from shutting off.

Check the switch that is located under your seat. If you are not on the mower while it is running the switch tells the mower to shut off. hope this helps

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!

Tip

Personal Safety


Be sure to take the right safety precautions before you mow.
  • Never attempt to lift or repair mower with engine running.
  • When mowing with a walk-behind mower, wear heavy-duty shoes with non-slip soles and long pants to protect your legs.
  • Always wear eye protection when operating a mower.
  • Don't mow a wet lawn or late in the day when the light is dim.
  • Never let the starter robe snap back when starting mower.
  • Always mow up and down an incline with a traditional (i.e. unit with steering wheel) riding mower.
  • Always mow across an incline with a residential walk-behind mower.
  • Never adjust mower height, clean grass chute, or remove grass catcher with engine running.
  • Always stay clear of hot engine. Mufflers can reach up to 1,200 F (648 C

I tried to mow the grass even though it rained this am. our grass was really high and i saw a little smoke come out of the lawnmower. is that because the grass was still a little wet or the grass was...


Nope. If the grass is too high, knock it down to size with a weedeater first. These electric mowers cannot handle the tall, high stuff. If you do, you will surely burn it up.

Own a Troy Bilt self-propelled model #12A-466-M011 for a year now. It worked great when first got it. Now it will not clear the grass underneath so cuts off every 15 feet and have to manually clear grass...


I had the same problem with my Troy-Bilt self propelled lawn mower. You have to use the grass catcher if your grass is high. Also, I mowed wet grass and it made my belt slip off the pulley and created a new problem, somowing wet grass is definitely not a good idea.

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.
