Excessive Grass I have a JD Zero turn and it is leaving an excessive amount of grass on the lawn which is requiring us to rake. Why is that? We never had this problem before. I didn't think we had to purchase a bagger for a zero turn unit.

My z5426 has allways left grass behind,i have to cut my lawn twice

Are your blades sharp? Are they lined up so they do not leave grass in between them as they spin?
Is your cutting deck level or is one side higher than the other.
These are all things that could cause long grass to remain.
Some times a bent blade will do this also.
I even had a lawn mower come in and the blades were installed up side down. He wondered why it would not cut right.

Rake your leaves to the tree lawn in no time!

When I was growing up it was always a family activity in the fall raking up the leaves in the yard. Over the years I have seen my parents try a whole slew of techniques for getting those pesky leaves from the yard to the tree lawn.

The technique explained in this tip will only work if you live in a city that does leaf pick up using a vacuum truck to pick up the leaves. If you have to bag your leaves then this technique will not be helpful.

The one way that they found to be the most efficient although a little physically exerting involved a few rakes and a large tarp. If you have a large yard you will want to get a few helpers.

Start by picking a place to layout the tarp. When the location has been selected start raking the leaves away from this spot so that you have a clear space to layout the tarp.

Once the tarp has been laid out rake the leaves on to the tarp. You can lift the sides of the tarp to move them in to the middle so you will have space for the rest of the leave in the yard. Continue raking the leaves into smaller piles and then add them to the pile on the tarp until the yard is clear.

When all or most of the leaves have been moved from the grass to the tarp you are ready to move this mountain to the tree lawn. Gather up two of the corners of the tarp and carefully not to lift the corners too high so that the leaves don't fall off the other end. Drag the tarp from the back yard or front yard to the tree lawn.

Line the edge of the tarp up with the edge of the tree lawn and lift the far side of the tarp up towards the tree lawn. Lift it like you are going to flip the tarp onto the tree lawn. This will make the leaf mountain flip on to the tree lawn and walla! the leaves are ready to be picked up or played in by your kids!

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!

Where could I buy a grass catcher for this product ?

I would vote for it. It is easier to get the cut grass in the bag than having to rake it up after!

aside from removing the grass that recently clogged the machine have you gotten under it with a spackle knife and really cleaned the old moldy grass that is stuck to the entire deck?

Why is my husqvarna zero turn leaving a strip of uncut grass on the left side of the deck

I have a 2014 HUSQVARNA RZ5424 that I just changed the blades on for the first time now 2017. I got new gator blades because of all the good reviews on them. They are about as good as a screen door on a submarine at 300 feet deep. There the same length as the original blades but leaves two rows of uncut grass about a inch wide regardless of how you try to cut it. Only 240 hours on mower, deck clean ,spindles kept greased . Went back to new Husquvarna blades like the ones made for it. PROBLEM SOLVED. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY. REL.

I have a Craftsman Lawn tractor. Blade leaves grass uncut.

Hi Tom,
Check your spindle shafts for loose play. If your bearings are worn out and sloppy, the belts pull the spindle to one side and an angle cut results... close cut grass at outer edge and high in center will leave this grass trail you are describing. I'd replace the bearings next year for sure.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

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.
