Tractor mower failing to collect grass

I just acquired a used tractor mower, only 3 years old. The grass collection sometimes works perfectly (I get an alarm when the bag is full) but, more often, fails abysmally, leaving all the grass behind. I cannot see any seal looks as though the bag is clicking into place very snugly.
I have the grass height set very low. The problem is worse when the grass is longer (I see long lines of left grass where I know it's been growing at its longest). What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help you can give me
Sorry I had to choose a pressure washer...there was no match for my lawn tractor, which is a HONDA 2417 HTE

Ok i need to know what kind of collection sys. you have.if there is an electric blower type system it may be that the blower isn't working. if the system works by the blade blowing the grass up the chute then you may want to check the blades to see if the up turned tabs on the back of the blades are still there and not broken off. also if your mowing too fast the chute gets clogged and the grass just balls up onder the deck ubtil rolled out.if a blower type set up check to see if there is a fuse to the blower motor.

Either siphon it out or disconnect the tubing from the tank that goes into the carburetor and collect the gas after crimping the tubing with some vise grips so you don't make a mess of things!

Why does my lawn mower misfire and not start?

How old is this mower? Misfire meaning backfire? Recommend a compression test. Small engines, particularly the the b&S and TEC tend to cold,allowing carbon buildup on the valves and valve stems.
This causes the valves to stick open. The intake primsrily. So, several attempts to start is called for along with backfiring and frustration Remedy to this ail? keep everything in good order, carb adjustment, clean oil, clean air filterand most important, clean fresh fuel. Carbon will build up so there is no absolute fix. . It seems to be the nature of the beast.Working the enginepromotes shedding of yhe carbon on the valve seatsAt one time the practice of misting water into the intake broke the carbon loose. Interesting, I guess it workedRememr, I'm guessing it worked.

Briggs engine starting problem

Maybe the connections to the battery are bad. The battery could be bad. The starter could be bad as the most likely cause.
The crankshaft could have too much resistance to mvoement.

Check these things out before calling a service center for your lawn tractor riding mower.

Carburetor is probably gunked up from old gas left in system. It will need some cleaning and / or dissasembly.

Have it repaired at a reputable mower or small engine repair shop. When being stored for long periods, run it out of gas or use a fuel stabilizer in the gas to prevent this from reoccuring.

It won't run, I checked everything ,hooked it up right.

Sounds like your pump is not engaging, I would check the wiring to the pump and make sure wires were connected and that none have been exposed to water and rusted, causing a bad collection.

Honda gas power pressure washer runs for awhile then cuts off.

did you pour all of the old gas out before you started to use it. Sometimes condensation builds up in gas tank when stored. You need to dump old gas an put in new gas.

Lawn Tractor Engine-Start Problems

Ed, I think that when all is said and done you will find that you have a defective STARTER MOTOR. If the BATTERY is at full Charge, and it takes a Battery Charger added to the Battery in order to get enough current to turn over and Start the Motor. I suspect the Starter Motor is defective.
I also have Sears Tractors with Briggs, three of them.
Also clean your Spark Plug when you service the Engine.
Good Luck!
