    Here in the northeast, the morning dew is leaving the grass wet until 10 am in some places. Alot of my properties have very thick, lush turf and my mower is clumping alot and puking out grass when I side discharge. I would like to know which machine you all think is the ultimate, most versitile mower out there. If you had to pick one what would it be?

    I like my eXmark and it handles wet grass fine. I don't make it a habit to mow when wet but when I need to it takes it with ease. Might not be the best for mowing wet stuff constantly, but give it a try.

    I was told that they all clump. My Scag doesnt do bad though if i tie the shield up.

    my toro does real well the sfs deck is made for wet grass
    but the new toro has the best of both qualities its the turbo force deck and its really the exmark deck that could be changed to the toro deck

    Someone elses.
    The grass is less clumpy on the other side of the fence.
    Clean it after every lawn,(when wet) and you should be fine.
