    What experience has anyone have using a mulch kit during fall clean ups here in the northeast the grass and leaves seems to stay wet from the dew I run exmark turftracers xp wb 52" should I just bagged it. I guess the real question is what is most productive for you.

    I run scags mulching blades with the clam shell bagger on a 52" tiger cub. I slip the blower belt off and mulch the leaves and grass, then put the blower belt back on and pick up the excess. (about 10% of what I'd pick up bagging only, and much cleaner job than mulching only). Don't take any longer than double cutting. I do this weekly, so it doesn't build up great volumes of leaves and I charge for the time it takes.
