Anybody use one, are they good. I'm thinking that if I used one I wouldn't have to use my push mower anymore. does it work alright on taller grass??

I've tried and removed it after 3 weeks of cutting last spring. Last year was a really rainy season so i never put the mulch kit back on after i tried it in the spring. The grass grew so much in one week that i was going less than 1mph to cut it and the engine would still bog down. The grass clippings would lay on top of the grass and make the yard look yellow in the few days. Most guys over here just bag for most of the year on the smaller accounts, so thats what i do.

I guess it would work ok if your grass doesnt grow enormously (1"-2") in one weeks time.
I would be willing to sell the kit if you want it, it comes with two sets of blades(different bolt hole sizes) the larger bolt hole sizes have never been sharpened while the other set have been sharpened times. I paid $195 for it last year, make me an offer.

I basicly only use the WB for smaller areas and hillsides. I can't put a bagger on because it wouldn't fit into the smaller areas. it's so much quicker than a push mower
