    Other than a mulching kit, is there any reasonable way to reduce the
    blizzard of clippings that blow out of the ZTR? My hay fever really gets
    fired up on cut day. :cry: :cry:

    Get Flonase. The grass clippings will fear you.

    I've used the white masks at times when it's dry out and the clippings seem to like my face.
    Flonase doesn't work for me but Rhinocort does. See an allergist and get a nasal spray. The will block the allergens before they have a chance to affect you.

    I agree. We can't very well suggest the double blde thing...It DOES reduce clippings, but it would be counterproductive as far as all the blowout problem.
