I have a LTX1050KW, and I believe I have tall fescue that grown insanely fast, if i'm not cutting it every 4-5 days it gets to long. Even when its been hot and dry the grass is still sappy and love to clog the deck. Mainly it gets hung up on the finger guard along the lower part of the chute. I plan on removing this and I hope this will help prevent any future clogging.

Ive been considering upgrading but unsure what to look for in a better mower for this type of thick, tall grass. Any ideas?

The decks on most mowers will cut no higher than 4". A lot of walk behinds won't go above 3 1/2". Probably, your Cub will cut at 4". Your fescue should be about 4" tall, anyway. You will have to mow more often. Anything above 6" and your machine will struggle.
