Maybe try removing that blade and checking it/sharpening it. You could also install a new blade or a 21" mulching blade that is designed a little different, giving a different cutting process and results. When the grass comes out by the left front wheel, have you shut the mower down and checked for any kind of grass build up under the deck?

    new mower

    OK. I realize the mower is new. But new doesn't necessarily mean that nothing is wrong. The wrong type of blade could be installed on the mower . The design and size and shape of the mower deck could be wrong . Check the blade. A mulching type blade is upswept or downswept near the end to create an air flow that helps suspend the grass blades once cut so that they can be cut over and over. A conventional 21" Blade has a more straight-edge design and is made to discharge grass to the side or rear (whatever part is open) of the mower. Maybe return it (if warrantied) and get a different model if you aren't satisfied.

My 21: self propelled yardworks lawnmower leaves a strip of grass about one thiird from the left hand side of the mower when i mulch with it. When I bag it works good.


I'd check your blade and see if it needs sharpening. The mulching mowers need to cut then vacuum the grass up and then cut it again. They must be properly sharpened for this process to work properly.

I need to change oil in my yard man lawn mower. Where is the drain plug? I need to change the oil


Hi, you drain it out of the dipstick filler hole by tipping the mower to that side. Remove the sparkplug cap first as a safety precaution. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I have a mtd yard man 22inch / mulcher . My question is how do I get the mower to start mulching ?


For mowers like yours, there are straight cut discharge blades (for bagging the grass) and there are more expensive upswept mulching blades. Any holes in the sides of the deck must be covered to mulch as the blade keeps the grass up in the air under the deck, repeatedly cutting it...over and over..till it falls on the ground.So use a solid deck with the upswept type blade.

I have a model 944-604810 riding lawn mower and find that it leaves a trail of cut grass even though it is equipped with a mulching blade and a new mulching cover. It would appear that the grass is not...


yes that is most likely the cause of it, also, you have to cut more often when mulching, and the higher the cutting deck, the more likely the grass will blow out without getting mulched enough. More than likely, the blades are dull, and/or the grass is too high, or possibly even wet if it is high.

Poulan Pro 22" does not mulch!


When you mulch you can only cut 1/3 of the grass off. If the grass is 3" high you can only cut 1" off.If you are cutting more grass of than you are leaving there is no place to hide the clippings.A general rule is if you notice clippings and clumps beginning to lay set the mower up one notch at a time until the clippings are hardly noticeable.If you like a real low cut then mulching is probably not for you,you will probably want to bag the grass instead.Hope this helps.

I would like to buy a petrol lawn mower, i have found out there are mulching lawn mowers on the market, what are your views on this type of mower


Mulching mowers are great if you dont have the time to rake the excess grass or the means ( time or ability) to dispose of te collected remains. The mower will mulch te grass right back over te top of the cut grass with minimal apperance of grass being left behind, if you kep up on the cutting schedule that is. Better for larger areas where "lines" would usually remaine with a non mulching mower.

What is the difference in a regular blade and a mulching blade?


A regular blade has a straight cutting edge, a mulching blade is bent to have a high and low cutting edge. Even if you have a mulching blade on, if the grass is too high or wet or you're cutting too low, it won't do a good job and may require a second pass.Raising your cutting height can help. Hope this helps. Dwain
