I have received 2 different answers to this in recent days from different dealers. When you have an Accel Deck with the Mulch Control Gate installed do you mow with the gate always closed, or only to prevent the clippings from being blown into flower beds etc....?
I have been mowing (1/3 height, dry) and seem to be getting a lot of buildup under the deck rather quickly. With the gate open, the small mulched clippings shoots out about 24".
Am I using the mulching kit incorrectly by having the gate closed at all times? My Freedom 42 had no side discharge at all.
