    I have a brand new Exmark 60 Triton with about 30 hours on it. I got to use it for the first time yesterday and it kept filling my shorts up with grass. no lie. It was consistantly discharging a decent amount out of the front of the deck. I haven't noticed it when the grass is longer.

    Have you adjusted the front baffle? How high are you cutting?

    I can adjust the front baffle?

    It's brand new I am running it how it came.

    is the grass sort of thin and dry? sounds like a blowout issue. try and adjust that baffle like casey mentioned. also you can back the rpm's down a little and slow your ground speed down and see how that does.

    Discharging. The grass is thin and dry. I haven't seen it happen any other time except when the grass was thing and dry.
