What factors would be the cause of this new MX8 cutter leaving uncut vegetation, specifically stalks and plants like sireca (sp)?
Pulling with a 4066R, seems to have plenty of power. Set engine just above 540 and the digital display says it maintains it...
Have tried going between 1mph and 4mph; full width cut and half overlap; low cut height and high height, none of those seem to make a difference.
The only thing that makes a difference is going back over it a 2nd time, then it is great quality.
I haven't checked the blade sharpness; it is new and had only 30 hours on it when I noticed the issue... so assuming the blades were sharpened right from factory, figure that's not 100% the issue
I also haven't adjusted the rear wheels, it seems to sit level when cutting at a medium height, likely 6" or so.
Is it just the way it is, because of how thick, tall, and strong the plants are? Or something else I may be missing?
