    Just that...I have a 36" turf tracer hp that I use to mow some fescue lawns that are at 4" high and I use a side bagger on them. I have been using the original blades and also gator blades and neither set seems to give a really good cut. There are always stray blades of grass after the mow....Does anyone have suggestion?

    How much grass are you cutting off the 4"?

    Exmark high lifts. Cutting that high you need maximum suction to stand the grass upright plus maximum velocity to pack the bagger tight.
