"recycling" mowers

So i'm a bit bummed'. One year ago, I bought a new Toro 6.5HP recycling, self propelled mower. I have to cut the grass every 4-5 days, any longer than that and the mower will choke itself to death on the clippings. Multiple times while cutting the lawn, I have to use plastic blade and scrape out the grass clippings. The mower mulchs, but it appears that most of the mulch simple sticks to the insides of the mower, so much so that it dies until cleaned out. Question: is this normal for mulching mowers? I don't think I can justify another mower purchase to the wife just yet. :(

You can try cleaning the deck as good as possible & try spraying with something like WD-40 or, even better Fluid-Film. The FF isn't as easy to find, but they have a distributer locator on their website. The stuff is eco-friendly, & stickier than any other spray lube I've ever used. Be prepared tho, it's not very cheap.
