But you do have to cut regularly, within reason.

both the Countax and the Dane have mulching decks .... but 6" of grass is a bit of a challenge to either of 'em....

the Countax is a double cut for a first one of the season and the sweeper/collector helps dramatically with that one ....
The Dane however, although chopping the hell out of it and coping well with the length, still leaves a trail in its wake ..... 'salorragrass

a twice a week cut is deffo the way forward on minimising collection though

The Countax's collector also helps a lot, but still ends up with a collector full each time.
when it's dry enough, I also put the Countax in behind the Dane, bum hanging off the seat sides, keeping a wheel on the 'deck', in just sweeper mode, to pick up what gets left.
had four collector-fulls yesterday, beside the drive, but'll hopefully not need to do that again for a few weeks, as there's sod all left lying now.

Twice a week also improves on the speed front .... it's having it dry enough to do it !!!
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
