There is something to be said about the Walker mulch decks being designed to mulch from the get-go, not being designed to side discharge and then altered with a mulch kit.
Excellent point, Nick. Also I think they counter-rotate towards the middle of the deck which might help with dispersion and prevent windrowing as much.

@Bruno- The blades do not counter-rotate on the 48" mulch deck though they are timed. Its effecency comes from the small propeller type blades on the blade hub and the deck baffels. It's all about managing the airflo.
