    I am thinking of buying a 36" metro hp with a mulching kit on it. I have a walker 42" ghs, but I am getting tired of dumping all the time and also running out of places to dump and I don't want to haul off clippings. I would mainly use it for weekly bermuda properties. Would this speed up the process and also leave a good quality cut?

    I just bought a mulcher for my 36" and it does save a lot of time....so yes I would get one.

    IMO you will like the finished cut better than the walker, add roller and proslide and it will look like a fairway that's cut with a reel. Make sure you dial in the deck rake for mulching, no more than 1/8 in rake and I like zero rake best.

    I run a 36" Metro with the mulch kit and after a little tweaking on the deck heigth the cut is awsome IMO. Looks like carpet everytime!
