Changing blade, it's to short to trench

Is there an upgrade for a longer blade, it's to short to trench. Also the blade does not trim the grass very well because it has no sharp edge.

These blades are replaceable. As they wear out they get misshaped and they get shorter. So you should probably replace it. However, you should not attempt to put a longer blade than the original on it. It was designed to run with a specific blade size. A longer blade would have a higher speed at the end, and will have less leverage so it would be easier to stall - so it would be unsafe and it wouldn't work very well anyway.

How to use mulch plug on cordless mower


Mulch plugs are typically a cover that is affixed to the discharge chute of a mower deck. As blades spin, they cut grass, and lift them up into the swirling air above the cut grass and below the mower deck. The clippings are suspended until they are blown out of the chute.

Mulching, is the process where grass clippings aren't simply discharged out of the chute after cutting; rather they are kept under the mower deck and spin around suspended in the blades resulting in repeatedly being cut. Instead of long clippings exiting the chute, much smaller clipping result from multiple cuttings and settle back on to the lawn under the deck. The smaller clipping allows them to decompose much quicker and return nutrients to the lawn.

Long clippings take longer to decompose and can turn into thatch on top of soil between blades of grass - effectively smothering the lawn. Long clippings can sit on top of cut grass and choke off sunlight, etc. and cause dead spots. Thatch can occur with mulching too - but takes longer to accumulate.

Sounds like you installed the blades backwards, so the blunt edge of the blades are hitting the tall grass. This would cause the engine to bog down and almost die.
When replacing blades, always note the direction of the cutting edge. If possible, take a digital photograph of the old blades so you can refer to the picture so you can be sure of the direction.
If you go to Sears.com and search your model number, you should be able to find an owners manual that tells you how to install the blades.

How do you convert the Echo grass trimmer model SRM-22ges to the brush cutting option?


There is a hole just above the grass trimming head that you can slip a screw driver into. Turn the head so that the inner and outer holes align where you can put a screw driver or other hard steel object in. Put it in there and then turn the head counter clock wise until it comes off, it may take a little effort to get it to move, but you should be able to do this with your hands. Once you get the trimmer head off, put the blade on and hopefully you still have the nut and washer accessories to hold the blade in place. You will need to place your screw driver back in the alignment hole to hold the head from spinning while you tighten the blade nut back down. Make sure it is tight, you don't want that blade coming off at ~10,000 rpm!

My 2 year old Husqvarna riding mower, with the welded steel deck, has the mulch kit installed ( I installed it). When cutting, the mower ususally leaves a thin line of uncut grass. More, when the grass...


I too have had that same problem. I found that "old" blades when repeatidly sharpened and worn will cause the same problem, also aftermarket blades instead of original manufactures recommended blades may not be dimensionally correct, too short. I have had to go back to using original blades to correct the problem.
This should work for you.
Good luck.

Why does the grass turn green when spring time comes then?


During the winter and fall months, rain falls less, sun shines less, and the air is much colder. Grass gets its green color from Photosynthetic cells in blades. The more sun and nutrients the grass see the healthier it grows. As the grass sees less sun, water, and is frozen from time to time, its internal processes slow down and many cells die or become dormant. As the rain begins to fall again in the spring and the sun shines longer and stronger it becomes much easier for the blades to transfer nutrients to the entire blade and will become a more full and vibrant green again. you can see this process in action when grass is cut too short in the spring or summer months. The grass will look almost yellow because exposed grass is usually "sun blocked" by the grass just inches higher. Yet in a day or so , you will see the grass turning green again from the botton up but the tips of the grass will remain white and dead until the grass grows and the tips fall off to form the all to familiar grass blade "D
HOPE THIS EXCEEDED YOUR EXPECTATIONS :D

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,,,
