Okay , I have done my first two lawns with my new eXmark Turf tracer HP 48". This thing really discharges far. without putting on a mulch kit, what else do you guys that have the turf tracer do to shorten the throw of the grass. Gators helped on my older eXmark- made the clippings smaller- less to throw. I will try them again. Also if I throttle down to lower RPMs, will this hurt the wheel motors? This is one way to keep the grass from going 15 feet out. I live in cool season zone, so I wonder if the option of the mulch kit is even viable.
