My brother and I just bought a brand new Exmark metro 36" and we are picking it up on Tuesday. we got a bag kit for it but the dealer told us that we shouldn't buy a mulch kit ($115) yet because the side discharge should cut the grass into small enough clippings. I found this hard to believe. the grass has been very wet lately so mulching could get messy. i think in the future we will need the mulch kit. i also think an Exmark will be able to mulch through grass that is a little wet. If anybody has had trouble mulching with an Exmark through semi-wet grass give me your opinion on how good it is? Also, we will be cutting off about 2.5" or less every mowing so i think the mulch kit will work. If anybody has an Exmark please give me your opinion on how good they mulch. thanks.
