    I really dislike mulching kits. I live in wv and in my area mulching kits do not do very good. One of my buddies has a 27hp exmark lazer z for his buisness and he has a mulching kit and it makes some yards look good and on others it just bogs it down. So i personally dislike them for my area. He is the only one in the area that I know of that uses one.

    Last week I bought a JD Quic Trak 647. I have took her through some real thick weeds and only bogged once, but I will admit, I was pushing her pretty hard and this stuff was about a foot and a half tall. As for fuel, I got somewheres around 1.2 gal and hour. Comfort is pretty good as is verisitily and ease of use. Going from never using one, in two days, I became real good with it. With only a 22 hp Kawi it has less power then others but she will cut some grass and leave a nice stripes as well. I've been a Deere guy all my life, from backlhoes to push mowers, "nothing runs like a Deere"
