I totally understand what they are designed for, that's why I bought one. I did say, I guess I should have worded it differently. I don't expect the thing to mulch the grass, maybe what I expected was less clippings to come out from under the deck... It blockes them from the chute from coming out but now they come out from under the deck. If I am 3 feet away from a sidewalk the blowout from the right from corner of the deck still sends clippings onto the sidewalk 3 feet away, but the difference is they are not being blasted with high velocity and there is about half the amount.
