    Are there any ways to keep leaves from blowing out the front of the deck on a 61" turf tiger with the bahia deck.would the double blade setup help to prevent this,it blows them out really bad when mulching.

    It would make it worse with double blades.

    I have a 48" Encore that does that also. I found that if I slow the engine speed down some it doesn't blow them as bad.

    i heard that if you take an old brush and mount it on the front of the deck it will prevent debris from blowing out and gives you better mulching capabilities

    I have a Walker and I screw nail a 6" piece of carpet around the edge of the mower deck to prevent blowby. I leave it off the front edge so that leaves can go under it. I usually go thru a couple of pieces because they wear off.
