These are probably basic questions, but I need the education. I have two 2006 2052's (one for me and one for my 62yr old mom - which she loves) Purchased new with mulch kits. Obviously new blades have come and gone. We just don't have the original cut we used to. We both have a lot of build up and she is underneath it pulling buckets of grass out every time she cuts. I'm not that disciplined. I've been tempted to removed the mulch kits, but when new, they were great. Aside from the traditional list you post...tire pressure, sharp blades, not cutting in wet grasses etc... what should I be checking? What are the right blades to use? Right now it's just a mulching gator type blade. Am I missing something... Thanks.
