I thought something was wrong with my mower until I installed this along with the mulching kit. My mower work better than ever and without all the grass blowing in my face!

Front Blowout Baffle Works Great
Received it 5 days after ordering. It's a pretty heavy duty piece of metal that attaches to the front underside edge of the deck with the supplied hardware using three factory holes. I've only used the mower once since I installed the Blowout kit, but it worked great. I was able to go over leaves without them blowing out the front of the deck and blowing back onto my leg. It gets the job done quicker because you don't have to constantly go back over the stuff that gets blown out.

Worked Perfectly
I use my lawnmower for leaf collection, but I always had a thin trail of leaves that would blow out from under the mower deck. I was reluctant to purchase this at first because I thought it was made of plastic and therefore overpriced. It is in fact solid metal and bolts on easily to the bottom of the deck. No need to drop the deck, installed in less than 5 minutes. I noticed the difference immediately after using it. No more leaves blowing out, no more need to go over the same area twice. Also, I recommend using the high-lift blades, which I already had for my bagger.

Very easy to install with four nuts and bolts included into factory cut holes in mower deck. Greatly improved the operation of the bagger. No more need to retrace your path to pick up leaves that were blown out of your deck. If you don't have one get one you won't be disappointed.

I installed this on a 42C Mower deck with a rear bagging attachment. This is a easy install - good quality steel -works as designed. Keep leaves from blowing out the front. Cleans the ground clean.

Delivered promptly. Easy to install. Works as designed. Ready for the fall leaf pickup now! Curious abut the folks using it with the mulching plug because the instructions for installation state emphatically that the baffle is not compatible with the mulching setup. Apparently it is, and works well(?)

Great value
I have had my X300 series for about 2.5 years with a bagger. I had noticed a tendency to "blow out" the front of the deck when bagging leaves or over this grass areas. After adding this plate, it has noticeably lessened this issue and "feels like" there is more suction. I think for the money, it is great. Yes, I hope the nuts holding it in place don't rust as my mulching plate "will" get put back on in the summer but I think overall this slight hassle is well worth the benefit.

I just purchased a new John Deere D130 lawn tractor in the first of June 2011 I had bought s mulching plug for it. I noticed when I used it the grass would blow back on my hood. This blowout baffle kit easy to attach to the front of the deck good quality steel.It also keeps the grass under the deck and mulches the grass finer then no raking and that is what I wanted.

Easy Installation
Fast Shipping, part fit perfectly on my X300 with a 42 inch deck, and was an easy installation. It works as advertised, if you use your mower to pick up leaves or mow your grass higher than 3 inches this accessory will greatly reduce the amount of blowout.

LA135SE with rear bagger. For years was experiencing front blowout when picking up leaves. I would say this attachment reduces blowout by 90%. Definitely worth the money. As others have said, very quick and easy to install, maybe 5 minutes.
