    Now that I'm using the Ultra Vac every day again, I'm noticing it leaves a strip of leaves by the right side blade.

    Anything to help this?

    Phis,

    Inside our outside of the blade, grass or leaves and what style of blade are you using?

    I had that problem last week and the bags were not close to being full.
    In my case the housing where the grass enters the ultra vac impeller from the discharge chute had some grass buildup. I scraped it out and that solved the problem. I;ve also found over the past couple years that you can't go too fast if theres a fair amount of leaves to be picked up as the impeller needs to have time to "process" them and send them up the tube.

    I love my Exmark mowers but I can't say the same about the Ultra Vac.
    It does ok but because the hp52 is such a small machine, its bagging system fills too quickly because of its small capacity.
