    2004 HP 23/52 with ultravac ... mowing at deck height of 3.5" and a significant amount of leaves are blowing out of the front of the deck. A 2nd pass usually sucks up the stragglers, but it's a waste of time. I asked my local dealer about the blow-out baffle, but he recommends lowering the deck to 2.5-3". I'll give it a try, but ...

    1. Will the blow-out baffle kit improve the performance of the ultravac?
    2. Can the blow-out baffle be used year-round with or without the ultravac?

    The baffle should reduce the blow out with or without the bagger attachment. From what I've been told most operators prefer to run with out the baffle in the spring but will often add it during the fall. This is pretty consistant whether the vac is in use or not.
