    I have a 44" Toro z-master, and I'm not getting a very good cut in some grass. I just replace the belt and blades or sharpen. I read on previous message that I should try ex-mark blades. Open for suggestions.

    make sure the belts are adjusted properly. How often do you sharpen the blades? I sharpen mine about every 40 hours or more if needed

    get some pics of the cut so we can see what its doing. and tell us what type of grass you're cutting. i use different blades/mowers for different grasses to get the best cut possible.

    It's leaving grass, mostly if it's grass w/lot of weeds.
