I started not to post because I was mowing 11, one acre yards, which is not home owner conditions. I had a 52” walk behind with a mulching kit. It was leaving a soggy strip buy the discharge block off plate. Everyone kept saying I had to slow down, way down. So, on my yard I tried it. To get a near perfect cut I had to slow down to about 1/3 of my mowing speed. I couldn’t do that, it would take me a week to do a days work. I got rid of the mulching kit. I think mulching kits are for the perfectionist that has time to relax and mow slow. If speed is in your needs, I think mulching might leave you less than impressed.
