    Check the operator headspace. It's one of those things that always gets overlooked when buying a Redhawk mower.

    It isn't the blades. I wonder, can an ex mark, bobcat... Any of those elite brands 32 wb give a clean cut when the grass is 5-6 inches long?

    check deck pitch. should be 1/4" higher in the back than it is in the front measuring from the blade tips to a level concrete floor.

    Yes, easily. I wouldn't call Bobcat and elite brand though :)

    I've cut 14" tall grass with a Scag and it still left a nice even cut with no clumping at all. The only issue was the sheer volume of clippings that were left had to be dbl cut to make them disappear. After that you couldn't even tell it was high grass.

    You figure out how to u/l pics yet?

    Going to be hard to change pitch on a fixed deck walk-behind. If the tires have correct pressure and all spacers are correct you get what you get, you can play with tire pressure a little.

    oh my mistake. i've never used a walkbehind in my life and never will so i have no experience with them. :laugh:

    what i meant to say was make sure the spacers are correct and tire pressures are correct. :rolleyes:
