PJ, I think I'm ready for a blowout kit on my 72" XR7. After cutting the grass yesterday, I was utterly covered in grass coming directly from in front of me from the deck. When I'm finished mowing the five acres, the deck looks like it's wearing camoflauge, I'm covered in grass and dirt. It's so bad that I'm having to hold my breath and close my eyes, something I don't think I'm able to do for five acres worth of grass. No, it wasn't windy yesterday. I have to take my Stihl blower and blow off the deck before parking it in the garage so it doesn't deposit a load that rode in on the deck. As I'm sitting here typing, I'm having to clear out the junk from my eyes from yesterday's session. It's bad. I love everything else about the mower, but really don't like to become one with the lawn in this fashion. This really needs to be fixed. My dealer is Terry's Tool and Equipment rental in Cumming, GA.
