    Has anyone retrofitted an SSZ with a turbo baffle? Any comments?

    I am not sure if it would fit, but in my opinion my Tiger and Cub have performed better without the baffle. It tends to windrow grass more, and leave a grass trail when bagging. I see no benifit in the baffle. That is just my opinion.

    I like mine!

    Went out of my way to special order it too.

    I have the old style deck (48") and it really helps with clipping dispersal. Notice less clumping and less grass thrown back at me.

    If they're so bad, why do all great cutting decks have them.?

    Ok, are you talking about that little thing at the chute or the baffle under the deck that is suppose to stop blow by? All I know is that when it is dry you eat dirt. Not like my TT.

    It's a retro-fit for old-style decks. From the pics, it looks like it goes in the chute

    I have an old style deck on my TT and love it. The new deck has that added baffle and you eat some dirt.

    I just put a turbo-baffle on my 52 ssz tonight and it seemed to help with clumping. It doesn't shoot the grass out like an exmark, but ut made a difference. B+
