    Exmark micromulch pretty much sucks on wet or thick turf. Lotsa clumping.

    Works great on Leaves. On wet grass it chops everything up but like any mulcher wet grass builds up and leaves clumps. You are better taking off the mulching kit and side discharging during extremely wet periods. In fact I won't put on my mulcher kit until the leaves start dropping, it will turn them to powder.

    I never take mine off. When its wet I leave a little later in the morning. When I do cut in wet or heavy dew conditions I may need to run over twice but thats it. Then you have the bagged look again.

    Well, based on geographic location, the micromulch system works like crap on thick wet grass for me in the midwest. I would look at the posts from people in your area odin00. I am about 2 hrs. from Chicago and we all have cool-season grasses here. I know they have different characteristics than the south. Do a search on this topic because I know it was discussed not too long ago. I had replied there also. Even double or triple cutting just doesn't work.
