Today when I was cutting with my lazer z I noticed that I was getting alot of grass blowout from the discharge chute, every now and then a big chunk of grass will fly out. The grass was a little wet (dodged rain showers all day), is this normal in these conditions?

Yea, it is normal, the grass is soaking wet and it sticks to underside of deck and comes out in clumps. I had this happen today and was really bothering me. The thing is, we haven't had rain for about a week. The absolute worste is when there are a lot of weeds, because they will hold water forever and really make a mess.

If the problem keeps on, what I have found, is to cut the lawn, do trimming and give the soaking grass a chance to dry. Then raise the deck to the highest setting and go over again, it will disperse the clumps, and mabey have to use the redmax eb7000 and blow them to smitherenes.........:D
