Dealer can't figure out the problem, and since it is my only mower, I can't leave it for extended periods of time. I've tried 3 different blades, keep them sharp, belts tights. It still leaves a TON of stringers. And I have to go slow, or it gets real bad. I won't buy another Ferris, until the deck design gets better.
Have you checked the pitch? I had a similar ferris machine years ago and it was great, tall stuff no problemo.
