Hi; I've been using this on my own yard for leaf clean-up for the first time and wanted to share how it works so-far. I have the 60" deck, the Gravely mulch kit and the wavey mulching blades that came with the kit. I have in all past years bagged with a Craftsman mower and bag system made for that mower. The Craftsman system did a good job but took a very long time due to it filling too fast and having to dump so often. I have a mix of fescue grass and so-far not very heavy leaf coverage. The Gravely did its best cutting at 3 inches. I tried at 3.5 inches but it looks like a ragged finish. The 3 inch setting really looks pretty good in fact. I really like the fact of how fast it is compared to my old bagging method. I have used the Craftsman this season too so it is fresh on my mind. So it looks like mulching will be my way of doing this based on what I see so far. I'm not sure if by the time all of the leaves are off if it will be too much leaf for my yard or not?? I'll report back when the time gets here.
