    before i put the mulching kit on my Gravely 252z all i heard was how awesome it was and how clean the cut was..... Well i admit the cut is cleaner , but damn does this high grass bog the mower down.... have to run over everything twice pretty much.... any of you guys have the same problem or have any tips on what to do BESIDES take it back off? I really like the idea that it doesnt shoot grass on everything or throw rocks and debris like the side discharge... just wondering if there's something i can do to keep it from bogging down so bad in thick grass..... Thanks in advance for any imput.

    I have the same problem with my 252Z. A lower lift blade seemed to help some, but ti doesn't mulch as well.
