I have a tru-cut mower and i was trying to scalp the grass this weekend. However I couldn't get nearly as low as I wanted due to grass getting jamming the reel and creating bad spots in my yard. it mostly does it in the same spots in the yard and it is very frustrating to have spent over $1000 on a mower that can't cut as low as it should. I have it set on maybe 3/4" to 1". I just had the reel backlapped also. I am thinking maybe I should get it dethatched. HELP!
