Metro cut quality comparisons

I just bought a 36" metro fixed deck. and want to hear from those of you that have the metro and other Exmark mowers as well. I want to know if the cut quality is about the same on the other mowers or if it is considerably better.
Thx.

My TTHP 36" will only cut good at 2 3/4 and higher, nothing below. Not enough air flow. I tried putting a rake in the deck and using washers to get the rear end of the deck up a little higher in the front, which helps air flow. What I've found is that I get a ton of blowout and grass goes everywhere. I mulch and when the deck can get adequate air, it cuts exceptionally well.

Metros cut well if it is set according to Exmarks recommendation in the literature that come with the mulching kit. If you vary too much from it you will notice a drastic reduction in cut as well as mulchine quality .......
