    It cant be right. Dealers make mistakes as well. I know the factory blades have had this problem in the past. I would buy a after market set of blades.

    Tell us a little more about what you are cutting....height, grass type, any weeds, wet conditions, ground speed, side discharge or mulch plate on, type of blades. I got three WB scags and they are a lot older and considerable less hp than you .....

    Don't know what type of blades you are currently using but I would suggest trying some high lift blades or possibly running doubles and see if one of those items helps with the problem.
