    Hi Cat 297c,
    Have you spent any more time with the ss eco ? Are they a good thing or are you better off sticking with a drum style mulcher?
    The local dealer here reckons they're the way to go (he sells both types). But I could imagine those block ups you mentioned could cause a lot of down time ?
