i have a minz 44 that has the hustler mulching kit on it with gators. this past weekend everything around here was wet and heavy. so i had a lot of build up under the deck. i had just cleaned it the night before and sprayed mo deck on it. my question is, has anyone ever run gators without the mulching kit? did it work as well, especially with leaves. and will it cut down on the buildup since i would think the grass would have more room to move around. thanks for any input.
