There could be a number of reasons for your push lawn mower to have problems with cutting, mulching, or discharging grass.
  • If your lawn mower is cutting grass poorly and unevenly, the first thing to do is check the lawn mower blade. Test the blade to make sure that it isn’t loose, blunt, deformed or caked with dirt and debris. Clean the blade, as well as the underside of the lawnmower deck, of all grass, mud and debris.

Lawn Mower Blade

  • If the blade is dull, rusted, bent or damaged, replace it for a new part. There is no universal blade that goes on all lawn mower types and brands, you need to get the blade that fits your particular lawn mower.
  • Test the front, as well as the rear, wheels to make sure that they are well balanced and that the pairs are the same height. The rear wheels on your machine should be set slightly higher than the front wheels.
  • If your lawn mower has trouble bagging or mulching the grass,  the blade could again be the culprit. Clean the blade if possible or change it if it is not in good shape. Also, check  the chute  to make sure it isn’t clogged with grass, mud, chips and debris. Clean the chute well and reattach the bag correctly.
