    I have a Wright 36 RH....that has the baffle kit on it. WHen I first started, it blew out really bad. I went back to the dealer with a WTF question anad was told to purchase the gator blades to reduce blowout. Not much improvement. However, I also have a Exmark 36 inch walk behind with mulching blades. The holes for my Exmark and Wright blades were identical so I installed the Exmark wavy mulch blades on my stander. My blowout since installing the blades have been minimal....unless I try to take too much off. Does an excellent job mulching and FAR better than the gators.

    Still dealing with a little blowout. I'm double cutting every single lawn though. It just doesn't leave a smooth clean cut after a single pass. Don't feel like spending any money for a baffle kit as I may sell during off season for something else.

    mines in the shop right now, the mechanic agreed that it isn't leaving a good cut so we'll see what becomes of it.

    My deck cover was flapping around when I cut. Just discovered that 1 of the Tie Rods broke in half. Part Number 24410001. Anyone know the dimensions/measurements for this piece? So I can try and match it up at hardware store? Thanks

    I broke down and ordered the baffle kit as well as the tie rod deck stand screw from Russo. We'll see.

    Ok so I got the baffle installed and I love how the grass clippings shoot out really far. Seems to be good dispersal. The grasses I cut today were rain soaked so I got some clumping.

    Question: How should the blade spacers be set? I kept the 2 spacers above blade. It goes bolt, washer, blade, 2 spacers.

    check on wright's website under support, illustrated parts and find your mower. that'll tell you how many spacers you need where. top doesn't matter really as it doesn't affect blade position in deck. i have the aerocore deck, and mine came with 3 spacers and a 1/2'' offset blade. running straight blades i have to use 5 spacers in between blade and spindle to match the factory
     
  8. I have found gators to be the worst unless you are side discharging. They lose their edge the quickest too. I run a plate at this point and the stock wright blades or wavy mulchers work best with practically no blowout. The gators imo just don't do that well with munching. They cam be used with a plate but not the full mulching kit.

    I'm familiar with IPL pdf I look at it often. I was wondering if the blades have to sit a little higher up in the deck? I'm still getting minor blowout. Clumping is becoming an issue with wet overgrown crabgrass and nutsedge infested lawns.

    if i'm not mistaken, sitting them up higher could increase blowout due to less volume of air above blade. moving the same amount of air but now through a tighter space more chance for it to blow downward
