Woops - Yeah I meant to say deflectors.
I never have done much for mulching on the properties, I like the vacuumed look - at least in regards to the spring and fall cleanups.
It sounds like you have a good system set up tho for mulching.
More pics, the last pic is my garage just after storing the equipment for winter.
I sure could use another garage during the season for working/storing some extra equipment.
