    I just purchased a toro 52" z with turboforce deck. I had the dealer install a recycler mulch kit. I have never used a mulching mower. In this area we cut mostly fescue. I was wanting to know if there are any tricks or secrets when using these mowers? Anyone use these mowers give me your input thanks!

    My advice is to get rid of the mulching kit. We use to use mulchers years ago. When we cut fescue it clogged the deck constanly. Left wet clumps in the yard and wasted a lot of time under the deck clearing it out. Its okay later in the summer when the fescue slows down but in the spring it is a pain in the butt.

    FWIW I've heard and read the Toro Turbo force decks with the mulch kit is one of the best mulching mowers on the planet.
