I'm going to purchase a exmark metro 36 or 48 inch deck. I was wondering which deck mulches better. Also, is the mulch kit worth buying for these mowers? I've had several dealers tell me that side discharging will work just fine and that I didn't need a mulch kit. Any thoughts?

I know there are some old posts concerning this topic but not specifically the 36 and 48 inch exmark metro....if there is one that I missed please direct me ...thanks

so I've got several opinions here...does anyone have an opinion on which mower deck will mulch better? the 36 or the 48....i'm still not sure what to do...some people say get the mulch kit for sure..others say the blade speed is just fine for side discharge......never used the meg mo system...anyone use this with an exmarl metro 36 or 48?

Meg mo- what kind of cost am i looking at for either mower?

Thanks to all for any info in advance

My 36 Metro HP with the mulch kit and doubles does a fine job I have never seen any clippings. I can't say for the 48" but I am sure it will do a fine job also. Get the size that with match with the lawns and gates you have.

The 36 takes 2 18# blades at 59.95 +5.00 shiping each. Total 129.90. We used a36 for 10 or 12 years. Nice for to get thur gates.
The 48 takes 3 16 1/4# blades at 49.95 + 5.00 shiping each. Total164.85.

I've owned a 36 Metro HP with the mulch kit and I now have a 48" Turf Tracer HP(same deck as a 48" Metro HP). I'd have to say that the 36" deck mulches better because the 36" has a much better HP to deck size ratio. If the 48" had a bigger motor, it might be the better of the two, but it takes HP to mulch well.

I just put a mulching kit on my TT HP and it worked great. Install was easy, about 30 minutes.
I am using the supplied mulching blade.
As TRex said you have two trimming sides.
