    Yesterday while I was making a front skirt for my mower, I happend to look under and about $hit my pants. Sorry I didnt get any pictures. I bet I had a 1/2 a bushel of grass stuck to the bottom of my deck.
    Does anyone else have this problem. I also have my mulch kit installed. I never had this problem with out the mulch kit.
    I guess I take it back off, or clean under the deck everytime I mow?

    When was that last time you sharpened your blades??Thats when I clean my decks...Spray some Fluid Film ON there after you clean...It will help next time.
