Hello Enri,

The first step with this mower is to sharpen the blade to a razor like consistency.  Please note that the blade dulls very quickly, especially with wet or thick grass.  It takes me all of a few minutes to remove, sharpen and put the blade back on my mower.  So, I sharpen it every cut.  Even the new blades are dull by my standards.
