    I'm starting to have some leaves fall on some properties and the blowout from the front of the mower is scattering leaves after its been cut. Is there a way to stop or at least reduce the amount of blowout from the front of a mower while bagging? Thanks in advance.

    I've owned three Toro wb's and they are super mowers but for bagging leaves they do a terrible job. As you said the leaves blow out the front of the deck. The problem is the bagger is full of air from the blades and the extra air has nowhere to go except out the front taking leaves with it. The problem is not as bad if the leaves are damp. I'm not aware of a Toro part that will cure the problem. I no longer use my WB for leaves I have a soft bagger for my Z.
