Troubleshooting mower issue- used mower yesterday- tall, sometimes wet grass, and did so until 2 batteries both died.  Charged overnight, and today noted, as end of yesterday, mower starts, but sounds sluggish, and does not cut grass.  Any ideas on the issue here?

Have you cleaned the underside of the deck?
Could be loaded due to the tall wet grass.

Will do.  Not sure that would cause the sluggish motor sound.  Normally high pitch sound when running properly.

Yes, I had the same problem with tall wet grass once. Found the undercarriage completely packed, face palm.

That happens to me if the grass is damp.  It clogs up underside
