    Even when the grass is dry and I'm only cutting off a little bit the grass seems to roll out in clumps rather than spraying it out evenly. I was wondering if anyone else had trouble with this? It's brand new 19 hp kaw 48" cut regular high lift blades it came with. Blades are always sharp and deck is always clean. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    What's the difference between them and regular blades?

    Is that the ICD deck?

    I have always heard good things about Ferris's ICD deck as far as cut quality. It should not be clumping. A bunch of guys run Ferris's on hear and hope they can comment.

    MegMo blades are a disc with 4 knives swinging from the disc. We cut the grass up 3 to 5 times more and blow the grass out not throw like OEM blades do so no lumps or clumps comming from the deck. being cut finner and blowed out of the deck on a normal weekly mowing no grass showing on the turf.

    Sounds like they are the same thing as gator blades? If so, gator blades dont work well in wet grass.
