I just bought this mower a few weeks ago not running. With the help of everyone here I rebuilt it and now it purrs like a kitten. The original stock blades were shot so I replaced them with gators before I even fired the machine up. The cut is great but I have a TERRIBLE blowout effect coming from all around the entire deck. With this being a front deck machine, I am constantly in a cloud of sand and grass clipppings. This just can't be how this mower is designed to cut. I also have a high end bagger on this machine that runs off the deck pullies and sits on it's own wheels. The blowout just gets WORSE when the bagger is installed. Can somone give me some pointers on things to try to solve this problem. This is my fist commercial mower. Maybe someone here has this mower and has been through the same problems. I'm wondering if I should try stock blades, or some kind of double blade combo???? Or maybe need to fiddle with deck pitch????? I did a search but nobody mentioned this kind of problem with my particular machine. Not sure what to try exactly................just looking for some info. THANKS!
