    When I run doubles, stock high lift blades with gators on top, I get a trail between my blades in tall grass especially in turns. This is on my exmark viking 36 and Bobcat 36. Do any of you guys using Meg-mos encounter this frustation?

    How tall of grass? I haven't seen any missed grass yet using Meg Mo blades but I don't mow overly tall grass either.

    When mowing at 2.75 inches [I mow shorter than most.] I experiance this when pulling off 2.5 inches or more growth.

    the only way to eliminate that is a) increase blade tip speed or b) slow down your cut or c) raise your deck.

    as a general rule of thumb you shouldn't take off more than 1/3 of the blade length
