Haven't had either problem and I've ran it that way since I bought it in 07. When its starts to blowout that's my cue to put the flats back on. Are you running fixed or floating deck?

By flats do you mean the stock blades?

I have the fixed deck. I keep the blades with 1 spacer on top of the blade during summer and 2 on top during winter....

There as generic as can be. I matched them up at a fleamarket. No wave, no sail or ridges, perfectly flat. I run 1 spacer year round. I'm really only cutting tall weeds and a few leaves. With the dryer soil I don't want a ton of lift. Like I said cutting back to 3/4 throttle helps too.

Flats also stay sharper longer because you are not wearing off the edge with all the sand. I use them all winter.

Trying to find online, been buying through my dealer. They are completely flat no lift, sharpened from the spindle hole to the tip.
