Custom-Cut Baffle

Customize Your Cutter Deck to Meet Your Needs.

The Custom Cut Baffle System allows you to adjust the cutter-deck baffling for optimum performance depending on your cutting conditions. Raise or remove the baffle for taller, more wiry grasses. Lower the baffle to increase leaf-pickup performance and decrease front-end “blowout.” No other cutter deck cuts this well or gives you the ability to tailor its performance to your lawns.


  • Custom Cut Baffle System allows you to customize your cutter deck to your conditions.
  • More productivity. Cut more grass in less time!
  • Seven different settings to better match your individual cutting conditions.
  • Increased performance in tall grasses, weeds and leaf pickup.

There are up to seven individual baffle settings:*

  1. High positions or baffle removed — Optimum performance in tall, wiry or tough-to-cut grasses.
  2. Medium positions — Best all-around cutting performance in all grass types.
  3. Low positions — Enhances fall leaf-cleanup performance. Minimal front-edge blowout.

* 3 settings of baffle adjustment on some mower models. Refer to your operator’s manual or contact your local Scag® dealer for specific information and adjustment assistance.
