It is a side shoot mower.
Also I have noticed that as much grass comes out around the deck as the shoot.
I still haven't taken it back because everytime I call for service they say they are 8-10 weeks out. I do not want it to sit there because they store them outside so I ask for a return call and never ever get one.
They DO NOT WANT ME TO TAKE IT IN for some reason.

The ZT1 mower has a lot ol lift ( suction ) in order to pull the grass up for a good even cut. Around each spindle there are some holes that allow venting to enhance lift . That is where the clippings on top of the deck . Talked to Cub Cadet about the issue and they did not recommend blocking the holes .
Best thing is to blow it off with a air hose before putting it away .

Document the call requests.
That saved me when it came to my home heating units. Newly installed they didn't work right, HVAC guy would ignore medford 6 months, come by and day he needs to come again. After 2 years he says he doesn't need to look at 2 year old units for free since warranty is expired. The manufacturer hot all my texts, e-mails and a document of my unanswered phone calls. Old HVAC guy is no longer a dealer and the New HVAC guy fixed it in 1.5 hours.

Some pictures should show a lot of answers for me it should suck paper up at a foot and a half away from the deck all the way around and at the shoot straight discharge for 4 to 5 feet and the top of the deck should suck air and follow out the deck shoot ! It’s a giant vacuum sweeper
