    Hey all,

    I was wondering if there is anyone who uses their scag 48 without the dishcharge cover. I seem to get rows of clumped grass and am looking for a cure. Thanks.

    I do, advantage deck with doubles, stock blades with gators on top...no problems.
    Is the corner baffle in place?

    I have never seen a walkbehind with the discharge chute down and working, never. They are either completely removed or tied up out of the way. Mine clumped like hell till I bungee corded it up.

    Look around, I bet you can't find anyone running one down in place.
