Rows or streaks of uncut grass in your lawn may be the result of your lawnmower’s cutting blades being dull or otherwise damaged. Dull blades are the result of normal wear and tear from mowing. The bench grinder can be used tosharpen the blades.
If your grass is dull, you may need to replace your mower blades. You can do this by purchasing a new set of blades at a lawn service or lawn equipment store.

Why is my lawn mower not picking up grass?
A lawn mower may not be bagging grass because of a lack of air movement due to grass buildup under the mower deck, clogged blower tubes, worn blades or a slow engine speed. Bad belts, a worn fan or a damaged blower housing in a belt-style grass collection system can cause your mower to not pick up grass properly.
If you have a lawnmower that does not work properly, you may need to replace it with a new one. If you do not have access to a professional lawn care service, it may be necessary to hire a local lawn service to take care of your lawn.
Why is grass clumping under my mower?
Because when grass gets too long, your mower is forced to chop off way more than a ⅓ of each grass plant. This will result in a nightmare. Setting the mower deck to around 3 and 12 inches will allow you to mow more often. Don’t remove more than one-third of the blades at a time.
What happens if you put lawn mower blades on upside down?
Installation of a blade upside down is common. If this happens, the lawn mower won’t cut correctly or it will damage the blade. To avoid this, it is recommended that you install the blades in the correct orientation. If you are installing a new blade, you will need to remove the old blade and replace it with the new one.
You can do this by using a small screwdriver to pry the two halves apart. Be careful not to cut yourself on the way out. If you do cut your hand, don’t worry; it will heal in a few days.
Why is my lawn mower not running smoothly?
Air intake or fuel system problems are the most common culprits. If you have a problem with your spark plugs, you may be able to fix it by replacing the plugs with a new set of plugs.
How do you get rid of grass clumps after mowing?
It’s best practice to disperse the clumps on the lawn with a fan rake or blower. It may be necessary to place the clumps in a lawn waste bag and then remove them. If clumps are left on the lawn for too long, they can cause the grass to die.
