Im in the process of shopping for a new zero turn. I will be using a mulch kit 100% of the time. Do certain decks mulch better than others or is deck design negated with a proper mulch kit and blades installed. I'm coming off a 1996 laser z with 60" trivantage and exmark mulch kit with wavy blades. This mower I felt gave a real nice cut for me. I thought qoc was actually better mulching than side discharge with high lift blades. I wouldn't be replacing it if I didn't have to. I'm just a home owner and only put on 50-60hrs/yr. Looking at lower end commercial. I have husqvarna, exmark and hustler to chose from locally in Saskatchewan.
