I am with RustyAl. My lawnmower has more horsepower than an 8N and a 54 inch mower deck. It mows a lawn fine, but would suck big-time in 5 inch grass. Try smaller cuts now, followed by more frequent mowing and your problem may go away. The 8N was one hell of a good tractor, but it kind of stunk with a 12 bottom plow.
