    Our properties only get cut once per week and they can be very long for most of the season.
    The 44 mini Z is only available in 19 HP vs the Super which has 23hp. The 19 has a lot less torque which I think will be bad for mulching?
    All of our properties are tight condos with lots of trees. Would the 42 mini z be better then the 44 mini Z, since the 44 has no trim what so ever?
    Thanks alot Mike

    I had a 27hp 52 in super mini, and can not imagine mulching long thick grass. Mulching long thick grass using the deepest best designed deck and mulch kit can be nearly impossible even with suitale horsepower. I could be wrong, but with the deck depth on the mini's, I think you might be frustrated with either option. Very few guys get away with mulching cool season grass when it is growing fast. Good luck.
