    my 6th cut and I finally got the guts to rock the boat and start mulching but nobody paid any attention to it yet. I've done about 15 yards (of 25 I got) and it looks good.

    I did have a problem at one yard with a very thick lawn that was damp (they have a sprinkler system) it would leaves clots. I found myself mowing back and forth over and over and then finally blowing them around with the blower. Felt kinda stupdi blowing the lawn.

    I guess if it starts clotting you use the bagger?

    if you have some clogging, a blower is a good answer.... but this time of year where im at mulching is unrealistic....dont get me wrong i mulch but not during the heavy growth of the spring......

    Clogging that's the word, lol. Damn!

    Your climate isnt much different from ours, it can be pretty dry right now. I think our heavy growth spurt is over.

    I guess mulching in rain or wet grass is a no no?

    We have had a dry spring so far so the mulch kit has been on the 36 all year. Love it when you don't paint the house green:laugh:

    But it can rain all it wants to now as I don't own a mulch kit or a mower any more--:) --just a homeowner garden tractor:dizzy:
