wright 36, bogging down when blades engage

When i engage the blades on my wright 36" stander my mower bogs down and then after about 3-5 seconds the blades finally kick on into full speed. I only have 125 hours on the machine and I take good care of it, but the darn spindles arent grease-able which makes me nervous.

also, the non baffle side (enclosed side) blade leaves a sloppy cut on the middle of the deck. I tried gator blades and high lift blades, but it still does the same thing. blades are sharp too.

+1 also OP could be a governor issue. Make sure it is free of built up dirt.

I'm going to take it to a shop so I can check the rpm's. I was always thinking the engine might be the culprit. How do I check to see if it's the blade clutch?

I knoqw it is new but I always think it is running on one cylinder when it bogs. Spindles good for 600 hours q and newer model go more so not real bad. Get some bobcat blades from rotory #2173 9 yno288. Thecutting edge goes almost to the middle.
