Lawn Mower Suction


Curious question that you probably know the answer to. Do typical lawnmower blades spin in such a way that they lift/suck the grass up towards the blade before cutting it? I assume so, because the opposite would cause the mower to blow the grass down against the ground and not get cut, and also maybe even make the mower hover up of the ground!

Am I right in my assumptions?

Ayuh,.... That's correct,...

The little bent up parts of the blade causes the up-draft,...

Mulching blades are designed with even greater lift like this.
