    I can't get the Viking to mulch nearly as well as the TracerHP's....

    Why does the manual claim 3 blade spacers above blade for best mulching performance & not 4...Is it because of blow-out? Tried 4 & it seems to work better in lush conditions...more deck area for clippings to circulate ?

    How many blade spacers would be needed for the blade on the Viking to be in exactly the same position as the Tracers ?

    You are correct, lowering the blade can cause more blow out in the right conditions. If you place 4 below you'd be pretty close to where the blade is at on the TTHP but your really only talking about 1/4" per spacer.
