Yup me, too. I have a bungee cord that will hold it up when I want it to stay up and the mfg. springs hold it down when needed.Originally posted by bastalker
Mine flips up an lays on top of the belt cover. I just flip it down when I need it..
For what it's worth, take a look at the gear/pulley ratio of your timecutter. The ratio is 1 to 1.25. where the blades are spining 25% faster than the motor. Your speed on the blades is actually up there. My Timecutter 44" actually cuts pretty well. You might try the factory high lift blades for a better cut.Originally posted by n1alx
Also, my residential Timecutter doesn't have as high a blade tip speed as the commercial mowers, so I think it helps the clippings fly easier.
