There are a few factors that can affect blade turning, first is the type of wood and its thickness, how fast you are tyring to push it through, they type of blade and weather or not it is sharp and that the "kurf" is set properly, if it is not set correctly the blade will bind and slow down, it can hurt the motor too. one other thing is the voltage. if you are running the saw on an extension cord rather than plugged in directly to an outlet, you may experience a voltage drop, Never use an extension cord longer than 80 feet as you will see a voltage drop of 20 volts, (depending on the size and quality of the extension cord). If this is an old saw, the motor may just be wearing out and especially if the saw has been used in a commercial environment and for many hours without cooling down. If I think of anyting else I'll add a comment later, good luck

Have a Cox Stockman ride-on lawnmower that wont cut. Just added 2 new blades (using 4 high lift blades) and still have to go over 100mm grass 3, 4 or more times to cut it down.


check for slipping drive belts
check that the cutter spindle bearings are in good condition as they may be failing and slowing down the cutter blade speed

Slows down and stops when trying to cut hardwood


You just do not have a saw that has enough power, the blade is dull or both. Change your blade and push the wood through slower or get a more powerful saw for the hard woods.

This most often happens when you are mowing too much grass at once, or when the deck (or chute if you have a bagger) is clogging for some reason. Sometimes this is made worse by having dull blades. Usually mowing at a slower speed or mowing more frequently will help solve this. If the motor is struggling with the blades, these are usually the culprits. Clean your deck thoroughly, cut the lawn more often, or cut it slower.

In some cases, if your PTO belt may be worn, stretched, or need adjustment. When this happens, the motor will not slow down with the blades but will keep running normally and you may smell a burning rubber smell as the blades slow down.

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

Saw has lost cutting power


Open the side cover and inspect the blade path and blade tension. Rotate the blade by hand looking for interference at any point. Make sure the drive pulley is not slipping on the shaft and that the belt is not loose or badly worn. Make sure the two large drums that carry the blade turn easily (dry bearing?). Does the motor slow down? Are the drum rim surfaces (rubber) in good shape? If the tension device is at limit, but not tightening the blade, the blade may be too long.

If the grass is very tall (more than 10") you will have to slow down to less than 1 mph, if you have a mulch kit on this unit, remove it to get the grass out as quickly as possible. Also, sharp blades & a level deck are important.

Airens Zoom 1944 ZTR Blades Slow Down In Bahaia Grass


You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.
