Why are you guys saying that the debris would get thrown so much further on rear discharge vs. side?

Does your side discharge throw 5' in the air?

I haven't seen too many "professionals" in my area that know how to use a side discharge cover either on their commerical ZTR's and walk-behinds. In my opinion, debris coming from the side of a commerical deck with the blades spinning at 18,000 fps would do a lot more damage than this residential mower being discharged from the back IMHO.

Ive been doing that for a year now. I just out my accelerator grass catcher on and leave the rear door off and it discharges backwards.

Yes what you say is true. But I wouldn't consider those guys "professional" either. More like bozos on the verge of really hurting someone, commercial mower or not its just plain dangerous.

I agree completely. It's amazing that I have yet to see a major landscaping company in my area that actually runs their mowers with their discharge covers down. It's sad that it will probably take someone getting hurt and the landscaper getting sued before they take the simplest of safety precautions.

You guys probably all look like the pros in the brochures-khaki and polo's with not a grass stain to be found. I haven't used a chute in 20 yrs. and don't know or ever see anyone who does, I must serioulsy live in bozoland! I walk (and know) the property, and if I were gonna be slinging rocks or whatever, I wouldn't be there anyway.

Actually I mow with no shirt and flip flops. But to be serious your not alone just have to be extra careful. Sorry, bozo was a little harsh.

I mow with mine up or down...if it is close to anything it is ALWAYS DOWN. It took a stupid mistake to teach me though. I shattered a glass door...no good. The day before that I was mowing an open area and there was a random 4 inch rock in the tall grass I didnt see. I hit it, my scag threw it up in the air..over a 8 foot fence 15 feet away and right into a road. If that would have landed on a car I would have probably been out of business. It was also the next week that I got my GL insurance
