    1. Does Hustler make a higher lift blade than the standard one?

    2. What if anything can be done about poor vacuum when it comes to bagging leaves. The front of the mower really blows leaves on the right side.

    Thank You
    John

    P.S. My mower is a 48 walk behind

    Yes Hustler makes a High lift blade and you can also get a Gator Magnum for your machine. Pete has engineered a modified Super high lift blade that looks like it may be just the ticket for the Walk-behind mowers. Maybe he will add some more information when he reads this post. I haven’t had the chance to modify any of my high lifts as of yet.
    For leaves I have found the high lift with a Gator magnum works extremely well for bagging leaves. You might even try double Gators. I will close my OCDC and pulverize the leaves first then put my Accelerator on and vacuum them up. (Less dumping)
    I believe Hustler makes an anti blowout kit for there walk-behinds but I haven’t had the chance to get one yet so someone else will have to tell use how well they work. Hope this helps.
