    Have a 2005 x2003-50, with a protero 232 bagger, Just put the bagging system on the mower but with the blades that came on the mower, there is still some blow out in front of the mower. I had this same problem with my woods mower, maybe this is just going to happen, but if there is a better blade set up, I will be willing to try it. Anyone else using the protero baggers?

    Lower the engine speed about 400 RPM and see if that helps. I don't bag with my Dixie but I do bag with both of my Ferris'. At wide open throttle they blow leaves everywhere out the front. At a lowered RPM it is minimized. You do have the skirt at the front of the deck lowered all the way down don't you?
