    You can contact your dealer about the free baffle kit they made to fix this problem. We had the same problem, put the kit on, no more problem!

    Just looked through my private messages here, I get a bunch, and for some reason I overlooked yours, I am sorry.
    There are triangular baffles you can bolt in, or your dealer can, that will take care of the problem for you.
    They are part # 107897, you will need 2 of this part #.
    Your dealer can take care of this under warranty.

    We put the triangle in my deck and I thought it was helping but when you cut wet thick grass it will still leave a windrow of cut grass between the center and left blade. You have to lap back over to pick this up or it looks bad and this should not be happening, any more ideas.

    There will be a air lift kit available soon that will take care of it.
    I will post part #'s and availability when I have them.

    Bringing this back to the top. Not complaining, but my Super Z still leaves the stringer with all the "kits" installed. I got another 60" Super Z brand new this year, and it does the same thing. We are in Iowa, and although I dont have any customers complaining, the problem is not fixed.

    Have you told your dealer this?
    Email me and I will have someone contact you.
    We are not experiencing the issue we used to have with the XR-7's this season that I am aware of.

    I have informed the dealer, as well as Daren(black and gold). He is the territory rep for my area. I havent pushed the issue too much, simply because I cant afford to be without the unit during the growing season, and obviously there is no way to show the problem without growing grass.

    I have a 2006 44" Super Mini Z with the mulch kit on it and I have the same problem with uncut strip of grass in the middle of the deck. I think it is the left side middle. I did not notice it that much until I started cutting fescue and zoysia grass. I mostly cut bermuda,and I noticed it when the bermuda was a little higher than normal.

    You can really see it bad on the fescue and zoysia. I bought the mower in June of 2006 and really did not use it that much because I was just starting out and did not have that many customers. I think the mower is great but I really wish it had a better cut.

    Can you tell me what part numbers and parts that I need to get this problem fixed. I bought it from Terrys Tool Rental in Cumming Ga. and so far they have been great. I would like to call Terry with the part numbers and parts list so he can order them and I could get this problem fixed.

    Thank you for your help. Dave...

    We are seeing this too. We are adjusting deck level, I will see if that helps.
