Weibang tips

Hi all fellow Weibang owners and other mowers too :-) 

Today was the wettest so far for my new one and found I was having to cut 1-2 settings above what I would be cutting on if dry and then going over it again at that lower setting.

This meant I could go longer before I bunged up, have you been finding it the same ?? Any tips other than keeping bag clear and sharp blade to over come the double mowing or is just the deal in the rain ?

Thankfully the growth wasn't great from last mow but to be honest given all the thumbs up from other owners I'm a bit disappointed it struggled today .

Cheers

Ben.

PS saw one on my holes on Bieth Scotland, any one from here?

  • Same for me. I definitely find my Weibang better than my old Hayter Pro, but all canvas bag mowers suffer the same issue in my experience. Nothing beats a plastic box for wet collection like on a Viking or an Etesia.

    Hi Ben. Does your Weibang have BBC?

    • Hi Tony, no .

    Hi Ben, I found the 48 pro to be pretty handy in the wet. I've only had problems since I started using the 48pro BBC. For a roller mower in the rain,  I really rate your model.

    I got away with it today. Drizzle all day but by doing as you did- having the settings a little higher, and emptying the bag when only half full, I got by with the BBC model. Of course, it helps when there hasn't been any growth!

    • Hi Tony, do you leave the lawn a little higher on the wetter days and then drop back to normal cutting height on the next visit ?

      I cut most of mine at 31 with a few at 26 .

        Yes, the less I take off, the less cuttings to clog the shute. And of course, if the lawn is short anyway I can do this and the Weibang leaves a good stripe. Given a choice, on a regular cut I prefer to leave the grass a bit longer as I reckon they look better but on a day as wet as today I was glad I was working on short grass.

    • Hi Tony am i missing something why does the bbc model not perform as well as 48 pro 

      • PRO
        The blade on the 48 Pro with BBC has not got as high a lift on its blade as the non BBC version. To add , I've not had any issues with my 48 pro BBC, collects fine in wet grass, not as good as my Viking but that's to be expected...
