21” not mulching

I’ve been running an emission free lawn care company for 5 years. I used to use Echo mowers from Home Depot and LOVED them. Unfortunately, they disappeared from the stores and are impossible to find. I decided to try the Ego 21” mowers and am extremely disappointed with the quality of the cut. The mowers leave clipping everywhere. Wet or dry grass, this mower does not mulch. As a test I replaced the blade with an aftermarket mulching blade (had to do some modifications) but it fit. The mower cut perfectly! Only problem was, the blade was too heavy and the motor shuts off prematurely. Clearly the stock blades are the problem and there are no replacement blades to solve this.

Time to fix this Ego. If you’re charging this much for a mower I shouldnt have to be playing around with blades to get a decent cut. There are so many threads about this problem. Time to crate a decent blade already.
