I have a worldlawn 36 walk behind belt drive. The blades

Customer Question

Hi, I have a worldlawn 36 walk behind belt drive. The blades big down and barely rotate when encountering even the shortest grass
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Recently changed blades to mulching blades. The belt tension also seems a bit loose and I don't know how to fix it
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Are the blades on correctly, with the ear on end turn up? Belt has to have some means of tightening, it, Page 4 in the attached parts manual shows a tension spring for the mower belt. Check the spring and the belt itself.
