    we have a 61 super surfer and it seems in thicker grass it dispurses into a windrow instead of bowing it way out and evenly so when were done it looks like a hayfield ready to be baled cause of all the windrows we end up haveing to dble cut.
    Our little toro 36 and Walker 52 discharge blow out grass evenly in the thickest but that surfer seems to blow it out and down in to a row and like most people we take have off the discharge chute and still no better. There is no build up of clippings under the deck either I wonder if its because of the baffles underneath the deck??
    any thoughts or experiances ;)

    Do you have a TURBO BAFFLE like scag does by the discharge opening? If so remove it. If you dont try meg-mo blades.

    Just wondering is the belt slipping? Maybe try high lifts? or Gators? I 'm currious to know what you find out.
