The more tightly baffled the deck is under there, the less room there is for the airflow to come out the chute and it has to go somewhere, so it comes out the front since the front edge is higher than the sides and rear skirting. That's why we get covered by crap. Opening it up by taking those two plates out won't cure everything, but will go a long ways in helping you out.

The wavy blades not only create airflow in the horizontal plane like the high lifts, but they also create airflow in the vertical plane due to the wavy design, which forces a lot of the debris down into the turf and almost totally eliminates front skirt blowout.
