What is the antiblowout baffle thingamabob for the 52" and 60" decks in the other thread the administrator put up for you . Does this help with the ultravac. I have a 2001 27lc 60" lazer. Do I need this baffle? Another thing my ultravac is 4 months old and it has around 200hrs on it. the plastic housing (pn103-0426) in the bend going into the tube where the impellor throws grass,leaves and sand has developed a hole in it. The dealer saw it and it is from wear, at first we thought something may have hit it or something but you can feel where it gets real thin in the bend. My question will this be a warranty item. the ultra vac was bought on july 13, 2001. A commercial piece of equipment should last longer than four months and 200hrs. I believe the grasshopper housing is made of steel, I have a freind with a grasshopper and it's vac has around 1000hrs on it with no holes from wear. One other question is will the 2002 tthp 48" have any changes from 2001? my dealer has 2001 ecs I am fixing to buy, I just want to make sure I wont be missing out on anything.
