    i bought new blades for 60 inch lazer the other day. i put them on the mower and it cuts fine, but i seem to have a lot more blowout from the front of the deck than i did with the other set. any ideas why this is happening and can i fix it?

    You will for sure get some big time blow out with double Highlifts. :)

    The blow out can be regulated a bit by slowing down the RPM's to around 3200 to 3400 if you have to much airflow.

    A few weeks back, it rained almost every day for around 2 weeks and we had some tall thick grass to cut, I put on double highlifts on the diesel Chopper and the extra air kept the deck clean and did a nice job of cutting and spread the clippings darn near to Wisconsin. :D

    What kind of blades did you put on this time? Do you have the mulching kit on or side discharging?
