    Good evening all,

    I use my 48in belt drive (metro) w/ 15 hp Kaw for barkyards/ spots i cannot get with my 52 z with ultravac

    does anyone have experiance with the mulching setup offered from exmark for this unit (baffles, blades, etc) or will a OCDC work just as well, or any other options?

    Or am i better off saving my money and just do some extra blowing

    Thank you

    I had the 36" metro before I upgraded it to a TTHP. With Exmarks' mulch kit it does great. I tried a chute blocker with various blades and the cut wasn't as good. My concern is 15HP might not be enough power when mulching on a 48" unit.
