Wheel Horse mower

Hi All, Wheel Horse tractor 13-38 XL, any ideas why it won't through grass into the bags,I have even tried without the bags an the chute still fills up but won't blow out,even with really dry grass.

Do you have the blades designed to BLOW grass?

Are your blades worn too much to have the fan effect?

These are factory blades,a few years old,I can't remember if it worked any better when they were new or not.

Rooster brings up a good point about blade wear. I have a recycling kit on my Toro, totally enclosed blades designed to lift the clippings higher and chop them up finer, so, granted, different mower and situation, but I see noticeably less desirable results as the blades wear, and often it has not been the wear on the cutting edge as much as on the sail, the flip at the back of the blade, which, if run long enough, will wear to the point that I could almost shave with it. If you plan to keep it for a while, you're going to need new blades at some point anyway, so might be worth at least trying a new set.

Agreed, if it won't blow dry grass up the chute, then either the blades are turning too slowly or they are worn out.

It's always a possibility the blades are on upside down, easy to do. Have a good one. Geo
