    I recently installed a mulching kit in my 52" Walker by adding the baffles and twin blades. I try not to mow when the grass is wet, but that is hard when there is dew on the grass until 10 am and I try to start mowing by 7. I usually have to stop at lunch time and scrape all of the grass from the underneath side of the deck. Just wondering if anyone else has this problem with mulching decks. Didn't seem to be a problem while I was side discharging with the same deck.

    I think all true mulching decks pack up this time of year. At least mine did.

    I guess that is why they make mulching decks......a modified side discharge just don't work?

    only dry grass will work on your 52" think about it wet grass will stick to anything and if your cutting and grass has no where to go it will stay on your deck. you need to buy another deck and switch off from side to mulching used decks are around $1000
