    Re: Hours add up if you forget key on.

    Another variation is RPM-dependent hours. My JD compact utility tractor counts hours at 3200 rpms, so if you run it at lower rpms (which is almost always for me) they add up slower than how long it...

    Re: X-BLADES / CROSS-BLADE SET UP??

    Not sure it really matters, but I would put the mulchers up top. I wouldn't really recommend running double blades with a high lift and mulching blade combo though. It's going to sound like a...

    Re: Longevity of Scag Mowers

    2,000+ hours is a reasonable estimate, with replacement of common wear parts of course - tires, belts, pulleys, bushings/bearings etc.

    Re: Hi lift versus low lift blades

    I run Gator G-5 high lift mulching blades with an open discharge on my machines most of the time. They have enough lift in most conditions to get a good cut and clippings are small to the point of...
  5. Re: Anyone else have poor cut quality with XT1/2 42" mowers?

    I'd be interested to know how the Radius deck stacks up to the Tri-Vantage deck you had on your Lazer. Those tend to clump in wet or lush conditions. My Lazer Z HP with the Tri-Vantage is still in...

    My Idea of a Picnic

    My Memorial Day weekend picnic. Wisteria vine destruction and widow-maker reduction. Damn vines are killing all the trees and creating a hazardous condition over the driveway.

    Good luck. I think we can all agree that it should cut better and that your expectations are reasonable. Something definitely isn't right.

    Tall grass Re: Doesn't cut all the tall grass

    As far as less grass being missed cutting shorter, that's because the lower the deck is, the higher the suction lift is. My mowers start loosing suction over 3.75 inches or so, but it depends on the...
  15. Re: Anyone else have poor cut quality with XT1/2 42" mowers?

    Yeah, I would look at how the blades are meeting. Looks like a bend blade or warped deck to me. Someone could have bent a blade uncrating, loading/unloading it or hopping a curb. My bet is a bent...

    Tall grass Re: Doesn't cut all the tall grass

    Leaves Re: LEAF SHREDDING ?

    I don't recommend running mowers through piles of leaves. It's pretty hard on them. Better to just shred them where they lie in my opinion. If there's not too many there's no need to bag them.

    Tall grass Re: Doesn't cut all the tall grass

    Re: Scag seat question

    Re: Cub Cadet xt1 22HP Throttle not working,

    I don't know about your specific machine but usually there is only that little bend at the engine that holds it on. Insert with the cable loose and the bend holds it in due to the angle it's on.

    Even when you're mulching you're still throwing grass to the right side of the mower. Mowing counter-clockwise means you're "throwing" towards the part of the lawn that has already been cut so you...
