    I'm hoping some of you vets out there can give me some solid pointers. I am looking for a walk behind that will fit the following needs the best: MULCHING and fitting thru fence gates. Obviously this would put me in the 32"-36" category and, obviously, I want to be as efficient as possible. I have a local Exmark, Toro, Snapper and Gravely dealers. I am also intrigued by the Quick 36 Sami.

    any thoughts????

    well everyone will tell you that Exmark,Toro,Gravely and the Quick36 are all great mowers. everyone of them has its good points and its bads. i think in your case it would come down to how the dealer was and price. if you do a quick search you will find a ton of info on all of those mowers.

    thanx buckeye- how well does the 36 mulch- especially in the thick spring rapid growing grass? do you have experience w/ any the other w/b mowers?

    We have several snapper hydro units and they mulch just fine with outlet closed. It is a solid built machine and dual hydro.
