Agreed Exmark deflectors just leave clump trailers when you're taking off more that like 2" of turf grass. Sadly where I work we have to keep them on and down for safety. Although we put like a 2" bolt through the hole in the deck by the deflector mount to help raise up the deflector and make it more level with the deck so that helps.
