i was going to ask, i was noticing when i mow the grass at any yard, that i can make a line and when i turn back around to continue to make a new line, there is still chips of grass still standing on the line i just mowed

i have new blades and they are the right size, and they are on right, just trying to see what else could be wrong


P.S. it leaves grass behind on thick grass and non-thick grass

What brand of mower are you using? When I mow I always overlap my lines about 2 inches. Your wheels will push the grass flat then the blade misses it.

Not sure I can answer this. Does it have a bagging system, maybe plugging up?

I've found that if I use mulching blades on heavier grass growth, or wet grass, I have to slow down quite a bit in order to be sure I cut it all. Its not a problem with shorter, dry grass.

It may boil down to mulching blades not lifting as well as regular blades.

Is the grass standing in a row or at random? That can be another clue.

now you have a mulching kit on there, or are you doing side discharge? Is the grass standing tall in a row, or is it kind of laying over, but you can see that it's not being cut?

Landonkade,

The triton decks are supposed to be a very good design. I have one. However, there have been many issues with exactly what you describe. There is also a leveling problem from side to side.

The stringers are sometimes taken care of with an update that the dealer should do free. It will increase the blade speed and add some baffeling from what I understand. I am scheduling to get mine done. If yours is a 2007 model it probably has the update on it. I would check with your dealer.

Also make sure if you mulch your deck is almost level. It helps with the cut. If you do both, mulch and side discharge, leave some rake to it.

Hope this helps.
