    But yours are so much more pretty! I might print it and put it on the fridge! :laugh:

    Its starting to look something like what Green has done with that aluminium, kinda.. http://www.lawnsite.com/showpost.php?p=4691844&postcount=295

    I just wish I had access to a full work shop and steel. I could mess around with it but I need a plan, a real idea before going to my friendly Scag dealer to fab it up. I cant take time away from him, I doubt he'd be paid for it by the importers. What ever I put on or do, has to be there for some time so it cant be a total fail.

    the box may be a big part of the problem. look at this scag deck pic.

    There seems to be a lot of attention surrounding that boxed out section at the rear of the chute in all these posts. I wonder if it being boxed like it is, but open at the bottom like it is, is causing some sort of low pressure area that draws the clippings back against that area?

    The pressure issue would be something similar to adjusting your front baffle up or down in that it changes the air pressure dynamics and creates more or less suction depending on the location of the baffle and on what you need at the moment for the type of grass you are cutting. Maybe that's what's happening with that design in that area.

    I believe so. IIRC, he just brought it up either earlier in this thread, or in another one on here somewhere about that Dixie. Hey, I was going to send you a PM, but see I can't.

    The minor clumping in these pics just doesnt tend to show up in a digital photo. When I got home and put these photos on pc, I couldnt believe the difference from photo & in person. So keep in mind the pictures here which dont look like much of an issue, in reality when I was looking at them today they were atleast twice as pronounced then what the pic shows.

    This grass is buffalo. not particularly thick, maybe slightly damp but has had the hot sun on it all day, was cut between 3-4pm in afternoon. Was only cut 8 days ago by me on the same deck height as has been for a few months now. Its not the kind of clumping that Im too concerned about, but it just shows them in a situation where there is no reason IE the grass is not too thick or wet.

    Anyway just thought I would share them.

    The back of the deck starts after the curve. Even the angle cut out is behind the curve.

    Green, I hear ya about it being difficult to take pics. The sun has to be in a good position, small clumps dont show up etc.
    Its like photos of slopes dont look as bad as they actually are!

    Ok, I think Ive sorted it...

    Just putting this out there.

    Green, I notice you are not using the OEM plastic discharge chute. I have read several times in the past that the chute must be down to disperse the clippings. I know that I had to leave it down on my demos and it did "help some". It's as if they engineered the chute to correct our clump problem!

    Just putting this out there!
