I have a Simplicity Citation ZT with a 48" deck. After getting tired of the side discharge blowing grass in my face, in my mulched areas, or making stripes of hay on the lawn surface; I decided to look into buying a mulch kit. I went to the dealer, who called the manufacturer, who sent me a kit for Ferris mower for $170 that contained 3 pieces of metal: 2 baffles and a side discharge block plate. There were no blades included in the kit. Attached are 3 pictures showing you what it looks like on my first mowing: IMG_3581 shows my driveway. I was mowing across the driveway to complete the striping pattern on the other side. My wife and I swept up the driveway afterwards. It filled our 40 gallon trashcan about halfway. :-( IMG_3582 shows some nice stripes, but there are also strips of uncut grass. It's kind of hard to see it properly in the picture, but you can see the uncut grass in the left 2/3rd of the dark stripe. :-( IMG_3583 shows a little closer up picture of the stuff on the driveway. It is actually mulching the grass. The mower never cut that finely when using the side-discharge. The grass pieces are mostly 1/2" and under. So, that's a good sign. Is this what mulching is all about? I will admit that the grass was a little long. It took me a while to put on the mulch kit, so the lawn was put on hold for a little while. Unfortunately, it did not obey my command to pause during that period of time. But, I did cut it at 4" on Monday. The pictures were taken on Thursday and the deck was at 3". So, there couldn't have been more than 1.25" to 1.5" of grass. Any suggestions?
