I have a 48" TT ECS which cuts grass great. But on mulching leaves, it's a real problem compared to other machines I've run (mainly fixed deck Scags). I believe the reason is that the machine does such a good job on dispersing grass clippings, that it just isn't very compatable for leaf mulching. I've tried the mulch kit on leaves, it can make a real mess of a driveway when exiting the lawn. And there are times I want to be able to disperse the leaf mulch. It seems the best way to do what I want to do is to use double blades, but with the floating deck setup, blowout is so bad this is unusable, and I don't want to add any stripping on the front of the deck. I'm wondering how many of you have experience with doubles on a FIXED deck Exmark. This way, blades can be brought up inside the deck and should reduce or eliminate blowout on leaf mulching. Will the fixed deck Exmark solve the leaf blowout problem? I'm considering either buying a 48" fixed deck which I may just use through leaf season. Or, buying a used 48" Scag fixed deck as my leaf mulching machine / backup machine.
