Just the opposite up here in the NW. Earliest season in 10 years at least. Started dethatching about five weeks ago and have been mowing ever since. It's still on the slow side so a few properties that aren't have fertilizer just dumped on them are getting cut about every other week. Should be full tilt by next. It's taken a little bit of the spring stress out of my year. Thankful after this past sad snow season.

Hey guys does your mowers discharge like this? Watch closely and you will see mine throwing the grass out and down instead of just straight out. This is the only thing I dont like and both my XFactor 60" mowers discharge this way.

I had thought the discharge was a little consentrated. It never posed a problem until I tried lower lift blades, I only use factory blades now. Gravely used our feedback for the new deck.

Yes. X2 on GMLC said.

Hey. If anyone is interested in a Power Chute for an X Factor I have a used one for sale. They are $340 plus S/H new. I'd sell this one for $150 plus S/H. Approx. 100 hrs. of use and motor is about 5 weeks old.

Did any of you guys notice a need for the weight kit that they put on when you have a bagger? I would prefer to take it off if it isn't really that critical

On flat ground no. Any hills yes. I have lifted my front end going up hill with a full load of clippings without the weight kit.

Took the weights off the very first day. Not needed unless you have a lot of hills. I have had all three bags completely packed and even running it up my trailer ramp the front end will not wheelie.
