    Im fairly new but I have worked for commercial accounts before. I know that businesses do not like ANY green in there flowerbeds... Do all of you use mulching kits all year round? Some places, a mulching kit is a must.

    I installed a mulching kit on my Lazer four years ago with the intention of leaving it on until late spring. I never took it off. I have found for most residentials and small commercials, it actually saves me time, even during the heaviest growth months. I only wish I had found that out years before.

    We run mulch kits year round on every mower. They never come off.

    We run mulchers even on the 21.Saves so much time getting the yard to look its best.I started doing it about 2 years ago, one of the best moves Ive made. As for the leaves ,cut when they are dry and they will be gone after a cut or 2, not that thick here.

    It depends on where you are located. I would think in this case, you could use it all year round.

    Where you using the Scag Wavy mulch blades.....we mow year round with all our mowers that have outlet blocked. I mowed a lot of wet rye grass it doesn't matter. If it gets real bad just take the 13HP Billygoat blower and it makes any clumps disappear real easy. YOu do have to raise mower sometimes when it is real wet.
