Wondering who of you out there have John Deere machines with the 7 iron decks.. have a question regarding leaf blowout ?? Today was the first day I really had quite a bit of leaves to deal with since I got the machine... And was noticing alot of blowout out the front of the deck ????? I am assuming this is because the front of the deck is angled higher than the rest of the deck ??? are there any optional baffles available or has anyone made anything ???? I was thinking if nothing is available I would just attach a piece of 1/2" angle iron to the inner front baffle creating a lip.. Thinking this would help ??? what do you think??

I'm running Meg Mo blades with my 7 Iron deck. I don't have any blowout. Seems to really help the 7 iron decks.

I run the mulch kit on mine and it is a little lower in the front so I haven't had that problem. But when I was running regular chute, in dusty areas a lotta dust would come out the front.

I run the mulch kit also mainly because in stock form the JD shoots clippings out too far so it's hard to keep beds clean and the clippings are very visible on the lawn. In addition I'm running one of the real thin Bobcat highlift blades on each spindle in addition to the JD mulching blade. It does make a noticeable difference in the quality of the cut.

I noticed on a drive by of the JD dealer that the 7 iron deck seems to be shallower in the front, is that to keep the grass up right longer?
It would pesent a blowout issue I 'd guess.

Ax Man, Yeah the front of the deck is kinda higher than the sides.. This is from what I understand to keep the grass up longer for better cutting...

SO the mulching kit works good.. Cool... But what about with leaves, I'm doing residentials that dont want mulched leaves all over the place, need to catch them....
