Jason2, I'm in Moses Lake not to far from you. I just put my mulching kit on my 60" and I love it for this time of year. I will use it until Nov 1st probably before I put everything away. My lawns stripe better with it on too. I also have the York striper which helps . I'm using Gator blades and it is turning evrything into powder. I'll switch to Exmark mulching blades next week to compare.
