    I put the mulching kit on my 2004 Lazer HP 48 inch deck about a month ago. The think does a nice job but when it get to dandelions it just takes the head of the stem and leaves the stem. Ive tried everything i can think of. I contacted Exmark and they told me to run the mower at a lower throttle. I think it made the situation even worse. Any one have any suggestions to how i can fix this problem. Also the blades are brand new as well. Thanks again for the help.

    Spray application is ideal, however your blades may not be sharp....

    We run the same machine and have the mulch kit as well (used it most of last season) but we havne't used it this season yet. It does a fantastic job and we haven't had problems with the odd dandelion not killed by spraying.

    Good luck!
