    I'm in the market for a bac-vac. I have a mulch kit installed on my 52/24 mini.
    However, I never attach the mulch plate. Is it necessary to remove the baffles in order for the bac-vac to work effectively?
    Also, does anybody have feedback to how well the bac-vac performs in pine-straw?

    You must remove the baffles for the grass to get from the center and left spindle to the blower then to the Bac-Vac.
    Although, if your mulching in those 2 chambers and bagging the discharge chamber only, you will pick up much less grass / leaves, and probably save a bunch of dump fee's and time.
