I have some questions about my semi-new Fastrak 20/52. I purchased it last fall and cut a little over an acre with it, probably about 20 times so far. Anyways, I'm having some issues with grass clippings clogging the deck. I'm fairly certain that it's not the Fastrak's fault (it was even worse on my old cub cadet), but I'm looking for any tips to make it better if possible. I have to scrape the deck out after every 4 or 5 mowings, and that's getting old! At my old house I only had to scrape the cub's deck once a year. Then I moved into a new house with a larger yard, installed irrigation, seeded new lawn, and after a couple months I'm having to scrape the cub's deck after every mowing. Also, it's taking me 3 hours or so to mow with the little cub 12/38, so I do some research and go out and buy the Fastrak. I absolutely love the fact that it only takes an hour to mow now, but I'm still having to scrape the deck too much. So does anyone have any tips to make this better? Am I just running the irrigation too much? (3-4 times a week if it doesn't rain, any less and the lawn starts to get fairly brown, and I always try to make sure it's been off for a day or two before I mow). Was I just spoiled before with my non-irrigated sandy lot, and my new scraping schedule is acutally the norm? Am I just letting it get too long between mowings? At the old place I mowed once every two weeks unless we got alot of rain. At the new place I'm mowing every 6 or 7 days, or even 5 days if we get a heavy rain, but there's a big area in the back that really grows fast and thick, and I'd guess I'm cutting at least 1.5 - 2 inches off there (ironically, it's the only area where I DIDN'T put black dirt ). Any other ideas that I may be totally missing?
