Ok, so it costs around $200 set up my Lazers to mulch. I have the ultra vac system for my small ztr but am very interested how the 60&quot; would mulch. <p>I live in Michigan on sandy/loamy soils. Can't believe mulching would be asthetically pleasing in the spring (heavy clippings) or fall (lotsa leaves). Who has tried the Exmark mulching system and what were your results?<p>Thanks, Gus

Hey Prime Seasons-<p>Nice to see someone from around these parts! I'm from Sparta, and just came from the dealer today looking at the Lazer Z HP. How do you like yours, and do you always bag? What size deck do you have? Do you do mostly res., or commercial? I would be nervous to buy the 52&quot;, thinking I would regret not going 60. What is your opinion on that?<p>Sorry for the off topic reply!

Thanks for the replies. <p>The HP is a 48&quot;/19Hp. Enough power for the deck. I keep this unit set up as a bagger all the time. About 15% clients require it. Am in commercial/resi environ.<p>You went to a dealer? Musta went to talk with Ralph, eh? Tell me what he had to say...<p>All people named Gus are pretty cool!<p>

I have mulch kit for lazer 60.I remove baffles and cover plate and run 2 blade per spindle setup for mowing. When fall arrives ,I put it all back on, remove one blade per spindle and the thing chews leaves like you would not beleive. I did about 70 mostly res. accounts last fall and hauled 5 truckloads of leaves all season. EASILY the best 150.00 ever spent for fall claen up tools.

Crew!<p>It sounds like you use mulch setup only in the fall... Is this correct and if so why do you not use it in the spring and summer cutting months? <p>Do you ever try gator type blades for fall/leaves application? Tell me more...<p>gus

Bdmir, Test drive a new machine with the good seat on rough ground and you will see the difference. I have the good seat on one of mine and the deluxe on the other one, what a dif. Take a seat for a test drive. :)<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>
