    I have a ? about the blow-out baffle. I have a 66" and put on my mulch kit to try on some staugastine lawns the other day. The cut was ok but the blow-out was terrible. Does the blow-out baffle work and does it change the cut any? BTW I was using standard gators with the mulch kit.

    I have the same mower deck but it is a 2006 XR7. The blowout baffle will help a lot but you'll still get some. You can also try the wavy blades that come with the mulch kit they don't pulverize the grass into a dust that blows out as easily but still do a good job. I don't think you will have any cutting issues anymore than you already do, if you have any. But next time compare a Bad Boy mower with whatever you want to buy. Up here we have all kinds of problems if cutting more than an inch with that XR crap deck. Sorry you can tell I don't like that deck much.
