As you guys know I purchase my 53 inch cut new this year and have been posting my experiences with it. I have had the mulch kit on it for more than a month and it performs well even in damp grass.Not perfect in damp grass but tolerable. The one thing I love about it is I got a call from a guy and pulled up to his house and the grass was knee high. Thanks too Snappers engineering I simply unbolt the mulch kit by removing one bolt and side discharge with the mulch blades. Mowed in one direction till I covered the yard.There were clumps coming out the size of small dogs. By the time I got too the edge of the yard I figured my grass piles would be huge. The mulching blades with there lack of air flow simply kept reducing the size of the clippings and dispersing them into nothing. I know it is not normal too be faced with such tasks but I would hate too know that I had too remove all the baffles that are required with some mulch kits just too cut super high grass.
