While cutting my grass today with my new Simplicity Conquest (purchased last November, but I haven't mowed with it till this spring), I noticed my left foot and running board being covered by grass clippings. This is the first time I've had this problem. I've mowed my lawn about 6-7 times this year but today the grass was taller than normal. I thought I read somewhere that Simplicity has a baffle kit to prevent this. Is this kit supplied free under warranty? Do I get the kit from my dealer or direct from Simplicity? Does anyone have a part number for this kit? Outside of this one issue, this is by far the best lawn tractor I've ever used. Very comfortable, and perfect cut!

It would be even nicer of them to include it when you buy a new machine -not ask for it after like you wouldn't notice clippings all over you....a Real good example of a Mfg not thinking

Either that or the manufacture could be thinking about the bucks they save by giving them only to the people who complain. That way the baffle installer position at the factory could be eliminated.hmmmmm

yeah i agree duc.., it does not make much sense.. they dont seem to scrimp out on stuff.. not sure why they would not include the baffle kit... especially if they are aware that it is a known problem...

do you wonder why they give you a baffle kit for free???

i still have not installed my dealer supplied baffle kit...
my grass was wicked high and it was very windy..
this was after only about 5 passes...

by the time i finished cutting.. my boot was under 2 inches of clippings...

That is ridiculous! I can't believe they would let a machine leave the factory like that if they already have a fix for it.

I know I promised to be good here but I cant control myself....
I'm glad Simplicity offers the "Scare Crow" option...I think it will be their biggest seller :D

SJ, I just blow mine off with compressed air and then if it is really dusty/dirty; I hose it off. I periodically pressure wash it. I bought some Simmonize pressure washer wax in the bottle at Walmart I am gonna try out this year. You might want to give it a whirl. By the way.....................I think that John Deere Green colord grass looks GREAT on your Simplicity SJ! ;) :D :furious: :furious: :lmao: :lmao: :cowboy: :whistle: :hide:
Have a great Memorial Day!
