    I found that the stens blades had over a 1/4" less lift. My guess is that was the reason but it is interesting your decks are different yet both 60"!

    It looks to me like all they did was slightly taper the front of the left side to aid in inside corner trimming. There's obviously a space between the front skirt and the actual baffle where no cuttting takes place, so they brought it in like they did to alllow you to get the front/left cutting edge of the left blade as close as possible to cut down on trimming that would need to be done otherwise with a trimmer.

    Also, to go along with what I just said, take a look at the left front caster arms. They've also brought the new 400 arm in somewhat compared to the older unit, which alos aids with inside corner trimming.

    That could be. I am going to change the blades this weekend and will see if the baffling is the same or not.

    Take some pictures under the deck. Don't think there are any posted on Gravely's site or on here. Curious to their baffle arrangement.

    So, just a straight across front baffle. No L brackets or curves to it?

    I assume that towards the discharge it opens up as the baffle meets the skirt at the discharge.

    I was looking for a full bottom view like I've see on other decks. I think it was Mickhippy that transposed a few decks into one to show the similarities.

    Yes. No Ls or curves and the baffle does open up as it meets the skirt at the discharge opening.

    Yea. Micks a genius. Ought to be in computer programing or something instead of mowing lawns.

    Are you talking about this picture?

    This looks to be the older version. Is it really that long, or is this like a 48" deck or something? Seems like the picture is stretched?

    Is the front baffle angled that abruptly directly behind the front anti-scalp wheels?
