My rider stopped in high grass, would not start.

My riding mower stopped in high grass, (low well watered and grows thick and fast) would not start. Next morning started. Tried the high grass again stalled and would not start. Unfortunately, I left they key on and battery was dead next day. Charged it and started, 15 min later, had to get off to clean up some debris, stopped again, will not start. Not even a sound, no sputtering, grunts or nothing. Yes, I had it in neutral and all those things. Appears to happen when it is hot. Been using the same mower for 7 years. I am a senior woman on a small budget!! Thanks

Your mower doesn't have enough power to handle very thick grass at high speed. You need to go slower across the lawn. That's easy to do if this is a push mower (just don't walk so fast) or if it's a self-propelled model with a speed control. But if it's a single-speed model you'll have to mow the lawn in fits and starts: squeeze the lever to move it forward; release it when you hear it bogging down; wait for the motor to reach full speed; squeeze the lever to move it forward again; repeat. Also, is the grass very high? If so, try setting the cutting height higher on the first pass, then lower it for a second pass. Finally, make sure the blade is sharp.

Tractor moves 5 feet then stops belt starts to smoke


There is something in a wad! You cranked it up to warm up. You drove it to the crime scene. You first engaged the blade which was OK?
Then released clutch to drive which, smokes the belt.
Most interesting and perhaps you tried to cut some super thick grass at high driving speed with a low/dull blade and the belt just can't tolerate that combination.

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.

Wierd grass catcher problem


There are a couple of causes for this. Is the blade height the same on the new mower? Higher blade height could cause a lot of the grass to be blown out from under the deck, and not into the catcher chute.

On the trailing edge of the mower blades is a small 'wing' for lack of a better term. There are two types of blades, mulching blades that have a lower 'wing', while catcher blades that have a slightly higher 'wing' but it makes a difference.

If the season has been hot lately, the grass may not be growing as fast, hence less clippings, and less dense grass could also cause this.

While mowing the grass the engine stalls and then catches back and stalls and catches back contuniually. the Murry select riding mower model number 405000x8c.


bad fuel filter, maybe cutting to fast, or grass is to high for what ever setting your at.

example. if grass is more then 10'' high, its not recommended to try and cut it to 3'' in one shot. start with the highest setting, and work it down. hope this helps.......

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

Mower won't start


13 to 15 amps electric or battery operated mower may runs slow when cutting thick grass. also recommended not to cut grass when it's wet & need very sharp blade to do the lawn. may overloading it, cutting grass too thick also draws too much power. check house breaker first.
