at the begining of the 10 season i bought a new hustler z with the 60inch xr7 deck. i really love the mower its great on hills and you sit low on it and can fit under lots of trees. I think the mower stripes very nice and cuts pretty clean.. only problem i have is the clippings are very long and it doesnt discarge them well.. i run the stock blades.. ive run doubles with a gator on top and the stocks on bottom didnt really help much and put to much strain when engaging the pto. ive also run just the gators but they didnt stripe well and didnt cut near as clean and the stock ones do... ive heard of ppl fixing this problem but dont know what they have done. i really love the mower i just have to fix they problem before the next season.. any help on my problem would be great!!
