    Southern Yankee,

    The MK443 (mulch kit for the 44") has a msrp $149. The mulch kit comes with a set of mulching blades. The gators will work pretty well in leaves but the standard blades may be better in grass.

    Thanks

    Terry,
    How much is the kit for a 36" Metro Fixed deck? Also, what setting should the rear axle be on to maintain mostly Bermuda lawns? Thanks

    Bushwhacked,

    It really depends upon what height your cutting at. If your cutting at 3" you can get buy with the C setting however you'll probably end up at the D setting sooner or later. If your cutting in the 3-4" range I'd work from the D setting and follow the table in the manual to fine tune your cut.

    The mulch kit is around $149.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the price .
    However , I'm thinking Bermuda (hybrid or Common) should be somewhere in the 1" to 2" range. The axle is on D now. I was thinking of moving it up to B....? Do you think I should leave on the higher one for spring and then move it down towards Summer.

    Bushwhacked,

    The B setting may not get you quite down to 1" but it'll be sweet at 2" range.

    Thanks
