    with all this rain i've got lots of grass clippings sitting on top of the lawn when i finish mowing. i mow at 3" and if too much grass is laying on top i raise the deck .5" and cut it a second time to disperse the grass clippings. i have a 52" lazer AS with ultra cut deck, gator blades, and ez chute. typ cut with the chute open unless going by beds. if i keep it down for too long it leaves big clumps that i have to run over to disperse. should i put on a mulch kit or something else? do they work?
    thanks

    Mulch kit will just make it worse if it's thick. Just double cut for a round or two and then things ought to level out.

    Agree mulch kit will be worse when thick and damp conditions. Mow into your cut 2-3 rounds then back cut to disperse.
