Hello Exmark, and others. I could use your thoughts on purchasing a mower. Ive been using a 48 Walker to service a number of properties that are less than an acre is size. At the present time I see no need for a larger mower, however I am in need of another mower to compliment the Walker. The Exmark mowers that Ive been considering are the LHP19KA465 and the LHP23KA465, however coming from a Walker background Im a bit concerned about the HPs ability to do a job without creating a mess should I choose not to bag clippings. I hear some people say that even without the mulch kit the Exmark does a good job of shredding clippings. This could be true, however if an inch of grass is cut, the grass has to go somewhere, and so Im questioning how noticeable or bad looking this could be. Also, how would the 19 hp Kawasaki perform with a mulching kit on it, or the 23 horse model? I understand from a previous post that the LHP19KA465 sells for around 7K, but how about the LHP23KA465?
