if you have a proper mulching mower then you cant cut it to low, the mower wont let you. Which is why you have to mow it a lot more than normal if you want to keep it looking nice. They are expensive , $1400 i paid for mine and it was the only one i could find that was just a mulcher , no catcher on it.

 

 

Why wont the mower allow you to mow low and mulch?   Low is subjective, I'm not talking bowling green, maybe 1" being low and  2" being good too?

 

Being a $1400 mower owner, what are top brands and dealers? There seems to be so many models but often the standard brands

 

I'm looking to upgrade to a long term top mower

 

 

 

 

there is only one for sale in NZ and Husqvarna makes it. as you can see it is designed to work as a mulcher .   Massport and victor used to make them but have stopped. The ones that work with a plug tend to vlog and you notice the clippings on the lawn . The Husqvarna mulches the grass into a fine mist that you dont notice on the lawn.

I cant find a manual, just a spare parts list.

 

If you are mowing fiddly bits you can disable the self drive?

 

If so, is there much drag still, from the drivetrain?

once you engage the drive train by pushing the lever down  you can disengage it by letting the handle up one click . It's really easy to use and becomes 2nd nature after a while .
