    Ive got a 48 TTHP and was wondering how well mulch kits work in cool weather thick grass up here in Michigan? Can you take an inch off at a time?

    I run mulching kits in both scag tt and wright stander zk and much prefer them to side discharge. You really need a good size engine, however. I am running 61" decks with 31hp engines and found it to be the perfect combination. I don't see ever needing any more power than that. Keep the blades sharp and the deck cleaned underneath. I actually prefer mulching in the rain to side discharge, too.

    21 push mower,32,48,60 exmarks are all mulchers-only the 72 is side discharge because it is only used on big areas
