    i am running a stealth with gator blades and it seems to miss grass, it just makes a few blades of grass lye down and look cut. what can i do to prevent it?

    Check your deck pitch, it should be a little higher then the front.

    check your tire pressure and make sure they are even

    good luck

    check the belt tension, tire pressure, dull blades, blades are proper length and balanced...

    I have a stealth but I am a homeowner with just over half acre.I have the front tilted higher than the rear but from what I have read on here, the stock blades are better than the gators. I have the gators but have not used them. Otherwise, nice machine for the money and lays a great cut.. Good luck
