How is this Exmark 30/Toro Turfmaster doing in wet conditions? Like mowing soon after a heavy rainfall wet? My biggest concern about replacing my higher power 36 inch mower with one of these is the configuration of the deck dealing with wet grass.

To be honest, it's not the greatest, def no mulching when it's wet and/or thick and tall...

Yeah, its been ok on the not so tall stuff, cutting 1/2"-3/4" off does good, anything taller than that and its been wet lately I've had to go slow...and it'll clog up

Just like with last years Toro TimeMaster 30. This is not a replacement for a 32/36 WB. It is a niche mower. Not an across the board one size fits all replacement.

Hands down my yBravo25 will out mow it in wet grass.

From what I can tell deck design for cutting and performance wise is the same as the less costly TimeMaster 30.

C22HD. Riggles recommend it.

On smaller lawns I prefer the 20-40 capacity hand crank model with cross back straps.

Need to buy a spare one of those for back up and rig #2.

I think if the made a good high lift bagging blade for it would do the trick, came stock with these slotted tail fin type gator looking blades, but I can't seem to find any blade alternatives as of yet....

It does clog up when mowing tall wet grass. The Honda works better in those conditions. My Quick 32 is unusable this time of year.

For the Q32 get the 99-127 Oregon blades with the sail of 50° or more.

For absolutely insane lift get the Oregon 91-621 but use a cut off tool to trim down. Front tunnel will still pack out but shear force of airflow will keep the deck pretty clear.

These same blades can be cut down for the Q44 as well.
