Leaf blowout problem....

    The leaves are starting to come down in my area and I wanted to put my bagging unit on so I can keep all my accts looking sharp. Well, when I got to my first acct and bagged the leaves and grass, the mower didn't pick up a good portion of the leaves. They would either blow out from under the mower or be blow away before I got them. I've got a JD GS30 36" WB. Right now I've got gator blades on it. Should I put the factories back in? Run at a lower rpm? Or is there a better way? Thanks for any input.

    Also my bagger is factory and is only 3 bushels. I've been looking at the accelorator attachment, how are they? And do they work well with a small deck like the 36"?
