Just started mowing today up here in MN, finally some dry weather, sun, and 50's. At any rate, got to mow for the first time with my Quick 36 Ninja, very excited about that. Here is my take after two accounts: Pro's: Stripes awesome (sorry didn't take any pics), ample power with the 15Kaw even when mulching thick spring grass, so much quicker than the 21" that used to be my primary mower. Things to work on (I am not going to say cons, I just started using the thing!): need to practice my 180 turns still have to do a 3 pt turn too much with the thumb reverse, grips started slipping down (I know this has been discussed on LS I will fix this quickly), a lot of grass accumulation under the deck while mulching, at infrequent times would blow out some wads of grass at the end of a swath - this is my fault, forgot to spray down the deck with Fluid Film before I went out. So, my biggest issue after a few cuts is the amount of grass accumulating under the deck while mulching. Perhaps this is due to heavier spring grass, or slightly damp (but certainly not wet) grass. Anyone else have an issue with this? I plan to mow at 3" all season with mulching.
