    Just wondering if anyone else experiences this. I get more consistent even cuts in thick grass than thin grass. When I mow a lawn that has thin grass with bare spots I see random blades of grass, or a random weed standing tall. My blades are sharp.

    Yes the deck loses vacuum on thinner grasses. Slow down a little and that should help.
