New Discharge Chute?

    I have a 2004 Super Z 60" and am looking to make the deck modification and try out the fusion blades. My dealer has obtained the modification template and ordered the blades and spacer kit, but he has told me that I will also need to order a new larger discharge chute. Since I have not seen this mentioned before, I was wondering if this is correct information.

    I bought my Super Z last October and now have 50 hours on it. It is one GREAT !!! machine. My wife loves to mow with the Super Z and is thrilled that, thanks to the suspension seat she no longer complains of a sore back after mowing.

    I do notice that I get grass clumping at the back part of the discharge opening, so I see the necessity for the modification.

    Your dealer is absolutely correct.
    The new discharge chute is needed for safety reasons, once your opening is enlarged the old chute no longer covers the entire opening.
