    As some of you may know I had a crapsman last year and decided this year that I would get serious about this biz, so i got a Lazer Z Advantage series with a 52 inch ultra cut deck and 20 horse kohler. Now in all the time I had that crapsman, I never had a problem with it bogging down in tall grass unless it was like a foot tall(it was a mulcher 42 inch deck), it had a single cylinder 18hp briggs in it, so my question is with the twin cylinder on the new exmark and 20 horsepower, i shouldn't have any power issues if I install a mulching kit, RIGHT???

    Does anyone have this motor and deck with a mulch kit??? Tell me how it works!

    My 60"/25hp (Kawi v-twin) is a power:blade ratio of 5 to 1 and it works very well with a mulch kit. Comparably, your ratio is a little higher so I'd guess it would handle at least as well as mine.
