    Couldnt post a quick reply so i will try this as some arent aware of the new decks Discharge side is some 40% bigger than the Old Advanatage decks and front of deck on the under side is almost like the old style pre advantage deck days should be a big improvement , also we have been running a high lift blade on discharge side and 2 standard lift on the other 2 helps alot with air flow , also on the older advantage deck we have removed the turbo baffel to open up the discharge , this last idea came from a old pro who used to be a member here and is quite respected in this industry in and around this area ( you know who you are !!!!!!!)

    Are you running that blade setup on the Advantage deck or the Velocity Plus deck?

    In this case, I have an old thread I'd like you to take a look at for me if you don't mind.
    Very tightly related... so I'd like your opinion....

    I just gotta dig the old thread back up.
    I'll post a link here if/when I find it.

    The second thread is mine and also covers some more of the stuff I want to ask you about.



    Primarily Chuck, I am interested in discussing discharge openings and turbo baffles with you. We might be able to help each other a bit. I think I have info you might be able to use, and I think you have info I might can use.

    You will see in the first thread that I posted pictures of one of my mowers in post #6, post #7 and post #8. As you can see in those pictures... Scag and Lesco share a similar shape at the rear of the discharge opening, which is slanted like so /........|

    I'd like to talk to you some, but at the same time, I don't want to totally hijack your thread either. So browse those two threads a little for me and let me know where you would rather have discussion.

    I have a Turf Tiger with the velocity deck and a Tiger Cub with the advantage deck. The velocity deck discharges much better than the advantage.

    Absolutely the velocity feathers the grass better.
