    How well do the Exmark Metro walkbehinds mulch? I am either getting a 32" or 48" and is 12.5 or 15 HP. enough? Can you run the mower all of the time with the mulch kit installed? How hard is it to install? How much do they run? I am new to this so any help is appreciated!!! THANKS

    The mulck kit takes about a half hour to install or a half hour to uninstall (48"). It is a little tricky the first time.

    I use mine for Fall cleanups only, it works great for that. The grass is a little to juicy for use during the summer IMHO.

    It is a good investment.

    The mulch kit is awesome. Bagged look. For a metro your probably looking at $110. I use mine year round, but I don't know about your grass types.
