    My first choice would be a Scag with a High velocity deck. I have a huge field I mow for a church every 2-3 weeks depending on growth. The John Deere Quick-Trak 667A mows it very tall and wet. No clumps. I don't use it for any other properties because it doesn't stripe well and the 62" deck doesn't handle the changing contours most of our accounts have.

    I HAD a quick track with the 7 iron deck - It did better than my Super Z deck when wet,

    I will be interested in what you come up with. People in other parts of the country really don't understand what we are dealing with.

    Here in Salem, OR.
    I have an Exmark tt36s and the mulch kit is awesome, but on wet thick grass (or even lush green thick) it slows the BTS so that it leaves a strip between the blades which needs a dble cut- which also rolls the bits up more., I agree with Richard as the clumps are from the stuff stuck to the deck finally falling off.
    I am going to side-cast as the cleanup is the same, but easier with out the rolled up clumps/bits.
    Going to be working on building an OCDC soon.

    That standing water will clean a deck out in a hurry.
