    Cut a little higher, slower, and lower rpm's. Medium lift blades can help.

    In the Northwest you could be waiting 2 months for the rain to stop. I mow to stay on schedule. Raise the deck up 1 this helps and you can always drop it the next week if it's dry and not have too much trouble.

    Try and keep it off the sidewalks, drives, the neighbors car, and house's. Sticks to everything
