Check you drive belt..sounds like it needs to be replaced. A loose belt will squeal when it slips on the pulley's instead of turning them...which explains the lack of grass being directed into the bags.

Why do the clippings remain on lawn and don't enter bag?


Blades cut the grass and blow air like a fan. The clippings should flow along with the air out into the yard or into the bag. That only works if the bag acts like a filter and catches the clippings but lets the air out to be replaced by more air and more clippings until the bag is full of clippings.
The most likely problem is that your bag does not let the air out. Cutting wet grass will coat the inside like green paint. When dry, it's like the underside of your mower.
Check the inside. You might need to scrape and/or flush from the outside in. Can yours be turned inside out"? That would be the best case.
When clean and dry, it should work.
Didn't mention the easiest fix: to take out the hand-ful of clipping blocking the path to the bad: since you already checked that.

I have a Craftsman SL3500 42" riding lwan mower. the two blads make uneven paths ans the left blade makes a cut about 1/4" lower than the right blade. What do I do?


You should be using a up lift blade it will help by sucking up the grass to be cut. You should have an adjust on both sides of the blade deck . As for the strip check to see if you have a wheel behind the mower deck. If you do it might be the cause for mower leaving a strip uncut . Sears has been noted for putting wheels in the path of the blade area and smashing the grass down . That is also why I suggest to use an up draft blade it should **** the grass back up again so you can cut it.

Ariens Sport Zoom 1440 blades engage slowly


check that the grass has not bunched up around the spindle and shaft in such a fashion that it is jamming the blade to the deck and acting like a brake

Craftsman riding lawnmower won't bag grass


A very common problem since mowers were made noise compliant, to collect grass you need draught, this is produced by putting a large wing on the ends of the blades and having a high engine speed, unfortunatly large wings and high engine speeds mean high noise, so today the wings are very small and the engine revs low, this leads to low draught and grass blockage, you need to keep the under side of the deck clean and free from old grass clippings, make sure the machine is fitted with collection blades, not mulch blades, i cannot tell you to increase the engine revs, however if for some unknow reason the engine were to start reving higher it would help.

When I engage the mower blades,It makes a loud noise under the mower deck and the right side cut lower than the left side leaving a pattern in my yard.Please help grass is getting tall


It sounds a lot like the balancer is loose. You can most likely fix this yourself, here's how: pull the spark plug wire off the plug, tilt the lawnmower up to expose the blade, rock the blade to see if it is loose on the shaft, if it is all you have to do is tighten the bolt so the blade and the balancer are flush to the shaft. That should fix your noise and uneven cut problem. If that doesn't fix it, let me know here, ok? Cheers!

Engine stalls when blade is engaged


the best way to check is to run the engine with you on it then lift off the seat and see if the seat sensor is cutting off then put a bag with some weight in it and turn on the engine it should run ok if the sensor is working and lift the back box to see if the sensor works there.. the other cause could be a build up of grass in teh cutter area stopping the blades fron moving this can caus a stall if you get a hose and blast under the cutter guards and make shure the grass shute is clear for the grass to exit this may help to mine cuts out if there is a blockage here and the grass cant get out after it has been cut it builds up at the exit plates.. Hope this works AB
