Do you know what kind of grass it is? Have you tried walking at a different speed, faster or slower, or not always cutting in the same direction? This article might help:

Hi sooby , thanks for your advice , the type of grass is Zoysia matrella
(Manila grass) , yes I have tried different speeds Smiling , currently assuming that the blade setup or the base is not perfectly level... the article is very helpful.
thanks have a great day in the garden..

Hey, David! Probably, the reason is the dull or low-quality blades. What is your brand and model? Take a look, I hope that this review will be helpful for you -

david,this might be a stupid question but does that reel mower have any adjustment too lower or raise the blade height?
