I bought a new czt sixty inch cut bad boy a couple months ago. We were in the drought so it sat still for a while now i am using it like crazy and some of the grass has just taken off. And is extra thick and tall. The mower has thirty two hours on it. But is leaving rooster tails like crazy. Would it be the blades or something else? It even starting to do it in then grass. It makes me chase my tail some times. I saw something the other day on here about this. But can not find it. Tried the search feature with no luck

I have never sharpen blades. They are what was on there. The grass that is giving me the most trouble is a foot up. And thick.

You are not gonna get clean cut on grass that is thick & 12"+. If you are cutting @ 4", you are taking off 2/3 of the grass. The mower is biting off more than it can chew!

Thats funny. I think if he shut the blades off, he would still get the same results.

you can't really expect any mower to have a clean cut when cutting a foot or more of grass with dull blades. In fact, even if the blades are sharp you will have issues with grass that high.
