Thanks, me too although its still not quite warm enough to start cutting yet! I'm also waiting on my MoJack Pro to ship! I just had the plug and the blade. No baffle kit. From what I remember, that wasn't even offered back in the late 90's when I had it. they did have the leaf shredder kit and believe it or not had a strip kit! They discontinued it but it was a really nice solid roller design. I think that baffle kit may be relatively new. Give it a shot first and see if the blade helps. If not, maybe spring for the mulch kit. I'm planning on mulching with mine 99% of the time and will do the same testing on it when I get it prior to purchasing the dedicated mulch kit. My SW21 did a great job even without the baffle kit. I'm sure yours will as well considering the design has not changed at all.
