Super Z or Lazer Z for mulching only?

    I'm looking for a 60" mulching Z and I am wondering if a Hustler or Exmark mulches better? If anyone has experience mulching with these machines your input would be greatly appreciated.

    Cutting mostly Fescue in cenral NC w/ 60" SuperZ and in the dry it works great on one pass. If its the least bit damp &/or high it can be a real pain. Usually clumps somewhat on the first pass and requires a second to clean-up. The deck depth and design are relatively close on these two machines but I admit I've never used the Exmark.

    I now prefer to run an "open" deck and use the Quikchute so I can mulch where needed but disperse in the great wide-open.

    I have heard of guys mulching all year with Exmarks.
