    Can someone tell me why the Honda HRU216 doesn't leave a good finish mulching as some have said on here.What is it doing not leaving the finish you are looking for,is it only during certain seasons you have the problem.

    I think most people use 4 high lift blades to fix chute issues. mulching juicy grass with 4 highs leaves a paste on top off the lawn also with the RPM at 3600 it smaches the crap out of the grass making the paste worse.

    I run 2 x 216's everyday one for mulching one for catching and discharge

    Catch with 4 high lift blades and Mulch with 2 high and 2 low

    mowers setup for two completely different jobs

    when mulching if the grass is juicy i back off the revs a little to 3200 it help reduce the amount of paste,

    Im going to try 4 low in the 216 next service and see how it goes mulching lawns through that couple of months extreme growth

    What do you think about me getting a reasonable/good finish from the 216 during drier months,are they having any issues with dry lawns

    The drier months it will mulch line a pro. 3600 rpm 3rd gear, not issues when dry only during growth period when grass is to long and full sticky sap. a little bit of clipping will come out the left hand side near the rear wheel but mowing anti clockwise or lifting your height a bit fixes that.

    What you have said Macka is no different to the other mowers i got and finish it leaves
    Toro 22"
    HRX with bar now disc
    Rover 22"
    Mulchmaster 22"

    They all mulch the same when wet giving the same end results
    What i have learnt so far the HRX is not as good in mulching as everyone says when using a bar blade,they are for American conditions
    I should have just continued with the 216 for mulching as i had nothing to gain with these other mowers
