Leaf vs Grass blow out kits

Anyone have experience with the two different kits available for the 54C X5 series decks?

First is the anti blow out kit I am familiar with and have on my tractor. It says grass blow out.

In doing some research etc, I came across a leaf bagging blow out kit.

I do see leave blow out and am wondering if anyone has experience with the leaf kit doing better than the grass kit. The descriptions mention the grass one is made for normal discharge and the leaf one is made to use with the Powerflow (which I have). Looking for input from anyone that has either.

I bought the second one for my 48c deck it does help keeping grass off top of deck, it also helps with leaves but they will still blow out some but not as bad as without the kit. I would buy again

Re: Leaf vs Grass blow out kits

I also have the second one (leaf blow-out), just bought it to go with a new (replacement) PowerFlow head for my 54C deck. It does a good job preventing blow-out along the right front of the deck, I used to have a big problem there when using the Power Flow in the fall to collect leaves. It fills in the forward edge of the deck where it is slightly raised, making that edge level with the remainder of the deck edge. So far, I find it worth the price.

Deere recommends removing it for regular mowing duties, and when you see how it mounts and what it does to the front of the deck, it's easy to see why. Wet grass and leaves would have a tendency to pack up around and under it.
