    Ride on doesnt pick up grass!

    I have an MTD 42'deck ride on mower. Thanks to a previous question I posted she is up and running beautiful, but I still have one issue. The mower will not pick up grass and put it in the bagger, any suggestions? I am pretty damn sure it is all hooked up properly but any help wpould be great. It has never picked up grass since I got it. Why wont it pick up grass?!!!
    Thanks in advance!

    What blades do you have on it?...I would think with a bagger, you would want high lift blades to get that flow going

    I would assume the stock blades. I did buy it used so I am not 100% sure. So there are different blades that may help?

    Interesting, I would have never in a million years guessed the blades may be the problem. Thats why I post questions on here.
    If anyone else has suggestions let me know, but I will try this soon.
