Had my Exmark Metro in the shop getting both spindle essemblies replaced ( thank goodness for the warranty ) and they gave me a loaner to use . It had the ECS system and side discharge ( I mulch ). I loved the way it handled, the handles were in the perfect position, would love to convert mine soon. As for the side discharge, I still don't like it, especially when there are leaves , it leaves the yard under par for my course, have to go back with a trim mower and mulch the balance. Anybody thinking about trying them out , it would be well worth your time. They are very LCO friendly.
