deere615 -- thanks. I will try your suggestion. I mowed seven properties yesterday, burning through three full tanks of fuel, plus more. We are learning better how to handle on turns to be more efficient.
I'm glad to hear the bagging function has worked well. That is very important for us. You and I are in the same region, so have similar conditions. Obviously, there isn't much to bag now, but in two or three weeks, we will be up to our eyeballs is wet, sappy clippings. We will know for sure how well it works for us!
