    I have a Scag Tiger Cub 48 with a 19 Kawasaki. We side discharge most of the time and use the mulch plate and gator blades for leaves. I have found cutting grass (weekly) with the mulch plate there is accumulation of clippings on the discharge side. Cutting wet grass or with heavy dew the deck loads up with clipping and leaves clumps. Do you have the advantage deck or the velocity?

    I have a scag 52 and i usually attach the grass gobbler, but if the lawns not to bad i will just use the side discharge. This seems to work fine I guess

    Same answer as the other thread....put the plate over the outlet and mulch everything.
