    I have a 61" Scag Turf Tiger - it has the Advantage deck. I remember a dealer telling me 1 reason for the Velocity working better is a larger chute opening.

    I noticed a plate on the side of my Advantage deck at the rear of my chute opening that kinda looks like its bolted on. And if I were to remove this plate it looks like it would make my opening about 50% larger.

    Has anybody even tried this??

    Thanks!!

    I have a Tiger Cub 48". I think all that plate does is disburse the clippings over a wider area. I took mine off and I noticed the clippings shoot out in more of a straight line.

    So leaving it on may be better? Wider area = less clumping I assume?

    Try it both ways. It only took me a few minutes to change it out.
