Toro 32 Floating Cut Quality

Ok, so when I am cutting the mower is leaving a strip of cut grass clippings laying on the grass on the right side. i am using oem blades. what do yall think I could try, I was thinkin of trying the gator blades. the bagging system is jus way over priced so thats not even an option. one way that i make sure i dont have to go back over the entire yard again is to make sure the right side of the deck is always facing the uncut grass that way i can over lap and catch the clippings laying on top the yard. any other suggestions, hi lift maybe too?????

If I cut lower than I'm cutting more grass. I cut at 3in on 95% of my yards. That leaves a nice height and enough nap for the cut clippings to get buried in. I sharpened the blades and it made a night and day difference. I will be sharpening them weekly now. Looking at getting the bradely blade sharpener.
