    I have an 01' GHS with a 48" deck. I am having a problem with clippings building up in the motor area of the mower, mainly towards the front under the seat. It has gotton so bad that after each cut I have to open everything up and blow it out. Has anyone elese had this problem?

    Where is the grass coming from? Is there a good connection between the blower chute and the hopper? I used to run an MD, only ever had that problem when the hopper didn't close all the way after dumping. Hope that helps.

    make sure theres not a hole in the blower cover... mine did the same thing and that was the problem.... we welded a patch on it ... problem solved

    Check your blower housing for a hole. Sounds like you might have one. I had a small hole that shot grass and leaves all over the same area you are speaking of.

    Yup, I'd check the blower housing. Also check the chute between the deck and the blower.

    Also you can wear a hole in the pickup tube from the deck. It will do the same thing.
