sorryy but not true i gave my lawn its first cut today using my stiga, basickly a strip of headland..rought grass and gorse ect...first cut looked great if i cut it once a week it will have changes from a field to a prize lawn with in 6 weeks guarented

 

This is pure rubbish - the public are misinformed enough already (just look at the perception of tree workers in general) without selling them the mulchers are great tosh. I have spent years rectifying lawns where clippings are left behind (regardless of how long the cuttings are). The lie that the super fine clippings fertilise, prevent drying etc is proven as such in many a grassmans diary - see pitchcare.com for starters.

 

mulchers rock, no more trips to the compost heap. Dave if you want a putting green you will need to soend £30k if you want to keep yor grass short with out walking behind a lawnmower, get something above average that doesnt rely on a big brand name to sell. Stiga all the way:thumbup1:

 

Stiga is a Mountfield product; the "McCulloch" of the pro grass cutting world. I turned a former tennis court that had become a field into one again in 3 years and approx £4k.

 

THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS!!!

 

Sorry to derail Huck and I know it's not turfcare war 3 but I strive to help not hinder.

 

Thatch? Scarifying? Mould? 100% of greenkeepers in the world would agree that mulchers are total crap. All I'm saying is work back from luxury turf care protocol; that doesn't exclude non-box mowing, just be prepared for the work involved in dealing with the clippings if you choose to leave them behind.

Thought you had a little man that cuts your grass Mr Huck.

 

Mulchers are good but need to be used every week. If its less than regular etesia would be what id go for.
