Your forward speed may be too fast for the mower blades to cut every blade of grass. It may be new, but check the deck to see if there are any dents pushing the quill assemblies up making the deck cut uneven. Or it may have the wrong blades on it.
I have seen this problem in the past with a Gravely mower. The person was trying to cut grass to fast. He sold the unit and the new onwer did not noticed any the problems the old owner described.

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!

I have a John Deere LA105 Riding Mower and when I mow it leaves a strip of grass in the middle. Left and right sides are cutting fine. I have taken the blades off and shaarpened them and have leveled...


jack the tractor (using a tractor jack) or remove the deck, measure the blade tips against each other where they meet in the center of the deck and see if they are the same tip to tip. Bearing wear, a bent deck or blade can make them cut at different heights in the center.

I have a 42 in riding mower and i need to know what could be causing it to mow grass uneven leaving a high streak in the middle of a cut?


Possibly blades need to be sharpened.also,you may be trveling too fast.only the first inch or two of the blades do the cutting.if the grass is higher than average,and you travel too fast,and the blades are dull,the unit cannot keep up with the rat of grass it has to cut every millisecond.hope this is useful.if it persistz,try being more specific and i will try again.i am a certified small engine mech.thanks,bart

During mowing grass will gather underside of deck leaving 2 streaks on r and l if you turn deck off grass will fall out of deck before restarting u need tgo move or mower will stall from grass build up...


There are a couple of things going on here. First, the blades are likely worn out and need replaced. As they wear and loose some length they can leave a trail. Second, if you have regular blades on a deck configured (by having discharge plugged) for mulching and you are using regular blades, then you can have a problem with build up. Third, you can have clumping problems if the grass is not dry when you are mowing.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Need to know how to properly set the guide wheel heights on the mower deck and the blade height for proper mowing heights.


with a marker,mark on the front of the deck where the blade height is, and do the same on the back, do this so you can get your measuring tap in there.play with the adjustments till you get the front and the back the same height,it should be around 5 inches florida up north 3-4 inches. it is hard to find a mower that can be set for 5''. the shorter you cut the grass the more watering it requires. check your grass type and search it's cut height and food requirements for you area or growing zone, for a happy healthy lawn.. jay the pump repair guy in longwood Florida

The blades stop turning under a heavy load on my Craftsman 42" mower deck. Is there an adjustment that can be made?


"the adjustment" is to slow down in high grass areas. alternatively mow more often so the grass does not get so high between mowings
