    Not much you can do for that. Bahia is probably the toughest grass to cut down here. You might try new blades if the ones on there have been sharpened quite a few times.

    We use gators over med lifts on our Scag 48" High Velocity. Only thing I have found that kicks butt on bahia. Good Luck!!!
