    I have a Scamper with a 48" deck and the Kawasaki 14 hp engine. I am having some problems with clogging. I was told that maybe some different blades would help. It was mentioned that blades tat are slotted help as they cut up the grass into smaller pieces. Any ideas? The grass was wet and about 14" tall. I guess I thought I had enough power to avoid this situation.
    Thanks

    Try HIGH LIFTS And Go Slow, If That Won't Work Try Double High Lifts And Go slow.

    You should try the dealer you Bought It from, Or the dealer Down the street. Exmark Blades Are Better then After Market Ones. So it Might Be True For Great Dane!

    Well-said John!! Please do not rate the performance of the machine when cutting wet 14" grass. The Scamper is a finish mower that gives an excellent quality of cut.

    Whenever cutting in wet, high grass, the operator needs to slow down and give the blades a chance to cut the grass, not lay it down.

    Thanks for your email,

    Bill
