You've got a very good point here, but if grass is cut on a very strict schedule the rear discharge deck will do a good job.
My neighbor has a rear discharge Super Z and we meet when cutting the sides of the road that runs by each of our farms. His mower leaves a very respectable cut if the grass has not gotten too large, but when I mow up to where he's stopped and the grass had gotten somewhat larger than normal, I can see a windrow directly between where the tires had run. Sometimes to the point I just run back over his windrow at top speed and fan it out to make it look better.
