    The mower leaves a trail of clippings when the bagger is used. It looks as if they need a baffle to direct them into the chute better. Are any available. The local Toro dealer couldn't find any on the parts site.

    Does this mower have the SFS deck?

    I purchased it from a guy who had just bought another LCO and it came with the route. I don't know if it is an SFS or even what year the mower is. It's a 23 Kohler and the serial # is 74225.

    Does it have a "Turbo Force Deck" sticker anywhere on the deck? Is there an adjustable baffle with positions of A, B, and C on the discharge side?

    No, it is not a Turbo force 60 with the adj. baffle. It's a 62 with no baffles. It's all empty space in front of the blades and the grass is not being directed properly into the entry chute attached to the discharge opening of the deck. The opening of the entry chute is smaller than the discharge opening of the deck.

    Does anyone operate the vacuum without the baffles?

    You could try different blade lifts.

    Yes there is a baffle kit and it does make a big difference.
