    I have a 36" Metro ... the mulch system works well, although I have heard that it doesn't do as well on the 52" Lazers, but not sure if that means it would not work as well on a TT also.
    They are not designed to be used with anything other than the Exmark bi-level mulching blades, although I have heard of a few members using Gators, as singles and as doubles, with good results.

    the lazer does just fine with the anti blowout baffle installed on the 52 and 60's. i think you will be satisfied with it. on grass don't use anything other than exmark's blades. on leaves gators and the mulch kit tear them to bits.

    Really? I'll have to remember that when mine is on again next year for the third season.;)

    Yes the mulching kit will shred leaves. Put gators on in the fall with the kit and it will turn all leaves into dust. For grass, I have found on warm season grasses it changes the air flow to much and I get a row of grass across the surface. Cool season grasses are not effected as much.

    Hey 65hoss, that is what I did hear from a one guy I ran into who has one. Like I said, that is what I heard ...

    HarryD, I am glad to hear that you got your machine and are happy with it ... I am sure you will get many years of good service from it and make plenty of $$$$$;)
