Just installed a mulch kit and gator blades on my 36" exmark fixed deck 12.5 kaw and the cut is awsome. There was no trace of clippings. The best part of this is there was no clippings to blow from my flower beds. If this will work on a day to day basis it will save me alot of time. Now all I need is a flex deck to make this machine do all that I need it to do.
