I bought a PGT9000 a few weeks back and so far wished I had kept my old LT1000 craftsman 42". The new PGT900 cuts terribly. By that I mean the leftover grass clippings are thick and leaves the lawn looking like its been cut after it was 12 inches high. My old LT1000 series didn't look this bad. I even put new gator blades on it, tried it with the deflector up and down and the same thing. Am I doomed to keep a new tractor that is supposed to be PROFESSIONAL grade but cuts worse than a 6 yr old tractor that was "lower middle class" grade? Any ideas? Yes the deck has been leveled and the front is about 1/4" lower than the back of the blade height. The gauge wheels are almost touching when set to cut height, and of course the throttle is all the way forward.(LOL) Oh yeah the tires do have the correct pressure too.
