ABSTRACT:
A mechanism for improving the dispersal of clippings in a container that receives clippings from a chute extending upwardly from a mower deck. A V-shaped deflector is provided and is struck by a portion of the clippings stream exiting the chute such that clippings are directed to the side portions of the container and a portion of the clippings stream passes beneath the deflector and accumulates against a back wall of the container in the central portion of the container.
