New Style Mulcher for Lawn Mowers
The attachment fits into the discharge chute opening and is equipped with special rod-shaped "fingers" that vibrate to keep leaves recycling under the deck until they're chewed into small granules.
"Conventional mulching attachments are simply a piece of metal with holes in it. Most of the leaves are blown out before they get chopped into small pieces. Because of the vibrating rods on the Mow-N-Mulch, the blast of air is allowed to escape but the leaves stay trapped under the deck where they're ground into small pieces," explains Weber. "The continuous recycling-mulching action keeps the underside of the mower clean and polished. Traveling at normal mowing speed, the attachment's action on the blade will reduce a shoe box full of leaves to a tablespoon full of granules. It also grinds up locust seed pods, small sticks and tall grass."
The attachment sells for $35, plus ship-ping. Works on all single or multi-blade mowers with powered blade and side discharge. "All we need to know is the make and model of your lawn mower and its cutting width," says Weber.
