    How does the recycler kits handle pine cones? I've got a bid to go out next week thats got an acre plot with about 50 pine trees on it. There is enough room to cut but pine cones are abundant. I'm fixing to buy a ZTR mower... would it be wise to include the recycler kit? Can you cut all year round with the recycler setup?


    thanks.....

    Hey Bushman dude: you're either part of the solution or part of the problem..... A Walker is that your final answer?

    R&G-I don't know about ZTR's with pinecones but I hate hittin' 'em with my 21". They usually shoot those little spur things everywhere and more or less explode. I don't like them but I'm sure with a ZTR they're probably not too much of a problem.
