Ok it need a governor adjustment,depending on the brand of engine, there should be a tab with a spring attached. U need to bend the tab slightly to increase the rpms.

It starts and runs for a bit but as soon as it hits thicker grass it dies


Joe Hi there. Sadly your trimmer will struggle on thick grass as it's not made for it. You could try moving the trimmer like a scythe. This will aid it as your cutting bit by bit.

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

Mower won't start


13 to 15 amps electric or battery operated mower may runs slow when cutting thick grass. also recommended not to cut grass when it's wet & need very sharp blade to do the lawn. may overloading it, cutting grass too thick also draws too much power. check house breaker first.
