    with me mulching is the way to go, the wright is not the best but I will use it with kit until it dies and do a lot of demoing if I have to purchase another mower. I am trying to get out of that end and go into the application end.

    Measure your blades with them facing inline with how the mower would travel mowing. You should have around 1/4 of difference with the front of the blades being lower than the rear. I have 3/8 of an inch on my RH and don't really get any blow out that I notice mowing. Since you have a fixed deck you'll constantly have a different pitch if you're adjusting the casters for height. You will have to adjust at the blades to avoid this. I ran multiple fixed deck wrights and just learn to cut crappy lawns with blow out and set my pitch for the nicer lawns. I really hated adjusting the spindles for height. At least on the 36 there is only two. If this doesn't help go into the Wright section of this forum and address it with them. I can't remember blow out being a big deal with my 36.

    you can adjust your caster forks by the spacers or those arms bolted to the deck.

    I'm still not sure why your having those problems. My 36 has been run for years with no kit, just a plate. Gators in summer, flats in winter. Flat pitch as well. :usflag:
  9. Wright is sending me a piece that I guess is supposed to act like an anti blowout piece for free. I'm going to get this problem squared away bc I don't want to side discharge. I have both a plate and the kit, gator blades, standard and wavy exmark mulchers. I will get this worked out.

    Diamond I read the other post where they will be sending you a blowout piece. They also said for you to weld the piece to the mower. Find a way to bolt that piece on rather than welding. If you weld it on and you don't like it then it would be much more difficult to remove.
    I have a Ferris walk-behind that had the same problem and I bolted on a piece of 1.5*1.5 angle to the front of the deck and it really helped the blowout. You might also want to look at some closeup pictures of the deck on the Badboy outlaw. They have an adjustable baffle on the front of the deck that might help you.
