    I have a 3 year old Toro Proline 48 fixed deck and in the past has always mowed very well for me.

    But this year it is leaving alot of blades of grass uncut. Nothing has changed from last year. The blades are sharp, etc.

    I have always felt these machine to be under powered (15 HP Kohler).....

    Any Ideas.....could the drive belts need replaced???

    Thanks

    Hello,

    try new blades, in the past on our 52's (proline) we've had the same problem, changed the blades and fixed it. It seems that when the get sharpened so many times the gap between them gets farther apart thus leaving the " high blades" of grass. it's worked for us, might be your problem also. Just my $.02
    Have a good'ay.

    NEW RAPTOR mulching blades will cure it.
