Check For Blade Damage
A bent blade is dangerous and it will cause lawn scalping, vibration and if ignored will damage the mower engine.
A new blade will solve many problems, when changing the blade replace the bolt and washer too.
Sharpen your blade once per season and more if needed.
If you file your blade regularly, it won't take much effort to keep sharp.
What Blade Type?
Or 2 in 1 loves to bag grass wet or dry.
3 in 1 blade is good but has limited success in more challenging conditions.
If your engine seems to be a bit sluggish, first check that the throttle is set to full.
The lever may be reading full throttle, but the cable may not be moving at the carburetor end.
Second check the air filter is clean, try running the engine without the filter and see if it makes any difference.
