    Mike,

    What model of Lazer do you have?

    There are anti-blow out baffles for some models. For others you can minimize blow out by switching to a solid airfoil blade and checking to make sure the deck rake is at around 1/4". It's also a good idea to check for belt slippage and check engine rpm as well.

    Thanks

    Terry

    Mike,

    The part numbr for the anti-blow out baffle is 1-641260. You should also check the other items I listed as well. Doubles would also cause excessive amounts of blow out.

    Are you mulching side discharging or bagging?

    Thanks

    Terry

    I am having the same problem with metro hp 36" if they make blow-out kit for please let me know . BTW it is when I do run high lifts with the mulch kit I know I should use the stock mulchers but the cut with the high lifts is so much better.
    thanks

    mike9497,

    The 1-641260 60" baffle fits 604(Ultra-Cut) and the 603(Tri-Vantage) decks.

    The 1-611277 52" baffle fits 523 decks only. We will be make changes to this baffle to fit the 524 decks. When we made these baffles years ago. At that time we had no 524 deck. (The holes need to be slotted)

    Trex we are in development of making baffles for other units. We have no clear time that they will be available, soon though.

    For more info on blowout baffles do a search, you will come up with plenty of reading on this great and wonderful site!!

    Thanks, Fred.
