grass clippings, mulching kit on your Z rider.. anyone?

I currently have a mulching kit on my Z. (husqvarana Z4217) It works great and you can't see any clippings unless the grass is excessively high, then it leaves chunks of grass all over the place and you have to overlap to entirely mulch the grass. My question is this.. My mower is a residential model and I am upgrading to a commerical Cub Cadet Tank model in the near future. All of you with commericial Z's.. does it matter if you have a mulch kit or not? How do you handle all of the grass clippings? Do commerical mowers cut the grass better and spread the clippings nicer?

I am trying to figure out if I need a mulch kit for my new commerical-grade Z.

I am pretty sure that most commercial mowers are designed to disperse clippings as evenly as possible, mulch kits are a pain, at least mine is. My 2 Cents!

We ran mulch-kits last year on our Z's..

This year we have been getting calls like crazy for new properties and we usually have to hack down some heavy growth so this year we decided to put the mulch blades on (they cut finer clippings) and use the bagging system.

Last year when we ran the mulch system there were some lawns where it worked great and others where they left spots that needed to be re-cut. PITA.

We use Exmarks. Good luck
