    I have a early to mid 90 snapper pro 48 walk behind. What is the best way to adjust my deck to get the maximum grass out the side shoot. It seems like it doesn't throw grass very far, even when the under deck is spotless. I've read that setting the front or back of the deck different will aid in helping the grass leave the deck. What is the best options.

    Front 1/4" lower. Won't make it throw further though.

    Make sure the blades aren't to high up inside the deck. I always run 3 spacers below the deck and one above the spindle.
