Don't knock it till you try it, I've mulched wet leaves, dry leaves, big leaves, small leaves and they all get cut up the same...wet leaves just means less dust...
P.S. started raking, then went to blowing, tried bagging and then went to mulching
Lower the mower to about 2 to 2.5 inches snd cut in a clockwise pattern twice arond the lawn, blow leaves into the center from drives and trimm4d area snd the continue to go in a circular pattern until ground up...worst case scenario, you have a few bags to bag up.
Visiting uncle in indiana i did the same technique with a riding side dischsrge tractor...same result..the leaves practically disappear.
Remember, most leaves are 90 percent air
