    I agree. Best kept secrets to mulching is regular cuttings, height adjustment, sharp blades and know the lawn.

    What you think you have gained you lose time to empty your bag/s, and then the drive time to the landfill, then time to unload. And you took all of the nutrients away instead of putting them back into the soil.
