View Full Version : Increasing Suction and Cutting Performance

04-16-2010, 07:35 PM
Hello All,
I have a Billy Goat FM3300E 33" mower that seems to have weaker suction than it should and as a result doesn't always provide as quality of a cut as I would like. Any suggestions to improve this?

I have two 33" billy goats, and we rarely use them. Those tiny little blades don't cut worth crap if you ask me.

Get aftermarket HI lift blades?

If it was working before and getting worst, check for air leak first, then check the rpm.

I have problem with my wb, after fixing all the air leak, still don't vacuum well, keep jamming, I adjust the governor to increase the rpm a bit and works great.

I also hate the fact that the height adjustment is only on the front wheels. There is only one spot where the deck is level. Maybe that is your problem, the rear of the deck is too high, drawing all the vacuum from there.
