9020 deck modifications

8 posts in this topic

It was regarding different blades & adding a center baffle to the Powermax decks if I remember correctly before it went away.  I have never used my mower deck so I couldn't confirm or deny that it would make a difference.

Hey guys, 

I put the wrong picture up and thought I had dumped the whole topic. I guess not!! 

What I was referring to was the large air gap at the front of the deck between the blades and deck. The blades hang lower than the deck and I wanted to know if anyone had experience with adding auxiliary baffles to promote more lift and chute velocity? I upgraded to much heavier Dixie Chopper blades and I have the tools and materials to fabricate the parts I need. Just wanted to know if this is an endeavor worth taking on? I have a ZT and another little green mower but I want this 9020 to cut just as good as it's gonna look. Dixie Choppers are fast but just not as cool! Lol

I understand what you are inquiring about but have not ever used the mower deck on mine.  It is a dedicated loader tractor.  From what I understand, they mow quite nice as long as there aren't many obstacles to maneuver around.   Steering over time gets loose & it may wander a bit if you are trying to make nice straight stripes.  As far as the "lift" goes, I'v seen where people have added conveyor belt material to the front & side of the deck to close that gap & to keep the grass from flying out the front of the deck only to end up stuck to the air filter.
