Ive got a JD x540 that I use on my 1.3 acres. I bought it with high lift blades and a bagger. I dont usually bag unless I have been mowing less frequently and need to get rid of some dead grass building up. I bought gator G6 blades that I use now. I have noticed a difference in rpm's since they are a heavier blade. I do keep them sharp but I feel like I am still getting a cut like they are dull. So I'm wondering if its just the loss of rpms? I have adjusted the rev limitor wire position from a post i came across that has increased it a bit. It sounds like it is getting good rpms without getting a mini tach. Im debating on throwing the high lifts back on. But it doesnt cut up the blades of grass as well. Any thoughts?
