I feel the clippings from the WI lawns shoot very well for us even when moist from morning dew.
I have not had any cluping or windrow issues with the chute blockers removed.
If the lawns are soaked from a quick rain, and were just trying to finish the current job, then it will clump a bit.
I think you mean deflectors, not blockers, right?
I use a blocker on my 717A for leaves -- blocking the entire chute for zero discharging of debris. But, its use is only a simple stop-gap measure for a first pass of leaf mulching, followed by another pass with the blocker removed and full discharge force from the chute.
