I only have real problems on thin yards or very fine bladed wiry grasses. Usually on those I drop the height down to 3'' or less and it does ok. The stock blades are only good for the thick grass, I run the Scag medium lift blades and have good luck with those
if the deck was off, it wasn't by much. Ya that's what we noticed. I purposely tried on a lawn with it had thick areas and thin areas. It did ok on the thick and crap on the thin. Compression meaning the idler compresses the spring rather than stretches it. It's a better design. The deck just doesn't have that much suction. We could of played with blades but like my dealer said, if it can't cut from factory, then why buy it?
