I bought this Vermeer 8020 on a KMC 4755 cart at an auction back in the spring. Used it the first time yesterday.

Kept getting hay wadded up under the "drive" end of the mower. Being a 3pt mower on a cart, I could not raise it up to clear the wad without raising the mower completely to the vertical.

As I went on it got better, probably because things were starting to shine up, and maybe because I was figuring out where to run it, but it still would catch wads especially on the headlands. Super annoying.

The spring doesn't seem to be doing anything and there doesn't seem to be a way to adjust it.

Clearly I'm not seeing something. Any clues?

ADDENDUM: Oh yes, it is hanging at the recommended height in the manual.

There is only one spring and there is no adjustment. It's just hooked on each end and barely has any tension on it. According to the parts book this is correct. The owner's manual does not mention anything about tension.
