    I am just wondering what you guys are using for fall cleanups in the dusty conditons? I bag the lawns and am getting alot of dust going through my ultra vac on my exmark 50 inch deck. I am currently using 2 mulching blades and one high lift blade on the vaccum side. Should I use a mid sail blade instead of the high lift, or is that going to not bag the leaves correctly? Tired of all the dust :cry: and need help on what to do to dial in my mower for years to come. Please let me know what you use for your set ups. Thanks! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Gators, but I still get dust. Not sure if there is a way to eliminate it totally. Just wear a dust mask and blow your air filters regulary.

    Keep the machines greased! Nothin' else you can do. Hopefully it rains real good here in PA.

    I always like dust when I'm doing leaves. It means there not wet. I don't like wet leaves, they're heavy and slimy.
