    Guys do any of you not use the mulch kits? How will it do if you just get a chute blocker and run mulch blades just in case you need to side discharge.. I like the mulch kits but doesn't it hinder you a little???:dizzy:

    i have just the mulch plate on my scag turf tiger and does pretty well. but there are
    times when the grass is really growing, i take the plate off and just side discharge. i thought about buying one, but for the price, i'll just take the two bolts off of the mulch plate, takes less then a minute to take off. someday i'll get tired of unbolting and get one!

    I am going to have my dealer make me a simple plate and hinge it at the same place that the side shoot mounts. I will simply pull it up with a piece of rope and let the weight of the metal hold it down. I am not paying $200 for one either. I didn't even try to put the entire channel on definitely wouldn't work most of year and since I don't have a fork lift can't be taking those on/off.
