After a long wait, I finally got the mulching kit for my exmark metro 26". Despite the lack of success with this unit, I gave it one more try only to find more disappointment. I tried to mulch a few lawns at 2.5" with the unit. With our heat wave, the grass is barely growing. Unfortunately, too much grass is escaping under the deck and not getting mulched. As a result, you get clippings being left on the surface of the grass...thus requiring another pass. Has anyone else with this unit experienced the same thing? Is there another fix for it?
