i installed my baffle kit and cut the grass tonight.. there was a big improvement... not totally fixed but a big improvement..

on the left side there was still a lot - not like in my original pic - FYI the pic was taken after only 2 or 3 passes on my lawn.. by the time id finished cutting there was 2-3 inches of grass...


This time there was less grass but still a lot more than on the right side...


i cut the grass at a height setting of 3 sort of in the middle..


On the right side of the deck there is practically no clippings.. on the left side.. there was about 1/2-3/4 of an inch of clippings....
Im wondering if the gators casue some lifting of the clippings and make the mess.. but id feel better about that assumption if clippings were on both sides..

just a baffle kit.. i looked at the install procedures and i put the bolts in backwards so the round part of the bolt is on the outside not the inside.. maybe that will have some affect...

see vipers picture:
<img src=http://www.trailtamer.com/letsrace/images/deck1.jpg>

i thought the rounded part of the bolts should be on the outside (for looks mostly) but i am wondering if the actual bolts on the inside are causing less baffleing... i have to swap them around


also for the 1st time in 2 years of cutting my chute got clogged... TWICE... not sure if thats due to the baffle kit, the gators or my bolt install...

I didn't know you had an Ingersoll. What model is this and does it work? BTW, Did you have to pay for this baffle kit or was it available in response to a TSB?

Thanks

You can pay rent if you want. Bill last month was $650.00
This month it is really cooking UP! :D

Might cost me a cool $1K/month to run this place before too long. I might have to charge you 20/month just for your pictures! :D

HAHA

Hey guys,

Thje ingersoll is a case hydriv 224, 14hp kohler k321, full hydrauliics. I liked the tractor and its built like a sh*t brick house, I just wanted a nicer tractor because I got a new lawn in and figured what the heck? j/k :D I actually wanted one that I could mulch with and was a little bigger and the fiance' was going to let me.

The tractor runs great when its running, right now I have a strange problem when its been running for about 45 minutes, it will just die. I can watch all the gas drain down the line from the carb, not sure if I need a new carb or what, havent messed around too much with it.

The tractor has a lever that goes from low, neutral and high, I swear when I put it in high, this thing cruises about 12mph lol.

I am going to be taking it up to the cabin. I do have a snocaster for it also.

Later,

Mike

Hey Stew,

The case is in the background, I can take a pick later of it. Pretty dirty right now, just cut the back field on the back of my property line, the weeds were like 3-4 feet tallarmy

Sorry I didn't pan the pic that far!!! My grandfather used to have an older Case. It was a hydro that you used a handle up by the steering wheel to choose the direction of travel. It had a low and high range lever down below the seat you could pick between low and high range. It was also full hydro for raising and lowering the deck or blade he had for the front. It had three blades in the deck and I would guess it was probably 48". Give or take it has been a while. If I had to guess I think he got it in the late 70's, and I have no clue of model numbers ect. I wish I had payed more attention. I am sure it would still be a decent tractor today, he took pretty good care of his equipment. He was kind of a yankee ingenuity kind of guy and instead of buying wheel weights he mounted a wire milk crate behind the seat with angle iron and turn buckles and filled it up with lead and assorted cast iron pipe chunks. He used to be in the plumbing business.... Anyway long post! I wouldn't mind having it today!:wontshare

It was VERY shiny so I thought it could have been SJ's unit. I actually figured it out earlier since the reflection of the photographer in the hood didn't seem to be of unsually large girth! :D :D :D (IT couldn't be SJ!)

Plus, where is the dog that is usually in all of SJ's pictures?

HAHAHA

:furious:
