    I saw a crew of 2 working a denny's resturant. Lawn about the size of a psotage stamp he had a weedeater brand riding mower on it. Must have took more time to unload it than it did to mow.

    I could have finished the whole thing with 21" in 5 minutes.

    I just put the mulch kit on my 36TTHP and am hoping it can stay on.
    Fareway have you come up with any blade combo or mulch set up that hides or disperses the clippings better than the standard Exmark micro-mulch kit for the TTHP?. I know you are always experimenting so can you share your findings?
    I also have control of the fertilizer on 95% of my accounts and am transitioning to organics using water insolible N in a effert to make mulching a reality along with higher mower heights than previous years. I am convinced as this area grows, and water becomes more of a issue that this the future of turfgrass management.
