Deck front blow out?

My Hustler Fast Track SD has been great this last year, but with the drought in Texas there are a lot of bare spots and the mower makes lots of dust, TONS OF DUST. It might not be such a problem if it would come out behind the mower but it blows out at the front of the deck and then you drive through the dust cloud.
Thinking of using some kind of flexible material along the leading edge of the deck to keep it from blowing out. Maybe something like a 2" nylon belting that would flex if needed but remain rigid other times. I realize that the deck pressure is caused by the high lift blades creating so much pressure under the deck ( I assume that is correct). Or should I just find some lower lift blades? I've got to do something to stop the dust.

Any ideas? Comments?

I cant recommend modifying the deck in any way.
You could go with a lower lift blade or even a mulching blade.
