Just bought a new Honda HRC 216 mower last week - the one with twin blades that mulch. It's pretty cool. The day we got it I tested it out on some fairly tall grass (about an inch higher than we'd normally probably mow). We set it at our normal cutting height and started mulching. The grass was a little wet. It had rained the day before and the lawns around town were still damp. The new Honda ate up that lawn quicker than I could blink. And I couldn't see a trail at all. I was very impressed. Even at full speed (4 mph, vs. 3.5 mph on the previous models) it was mulching perfectly. It's a pretty nice little unit. Going to buy another one tomorrow. Then 2 more within the next month or two. I think this year we won't be doing much bagging. I've never really seen a commercial grade mower that could mulch very well in our wet, northwest grass. But this one did the trick. Those guys are Honda are pretty sharp.
