My wheels simply don't rotate. The engine is running at WOT (~3600rpm-tach verified), my drive handle is fully down, and the wheels don't pull the mower.
I received a recall for something with the left blade and a washer. When I take it in, I'm going to have it looked at, as the lack of drive is ridiculous.

Side discharge, for me. Mulching just sends all the clippings to the right side and windrows them. There's no baffle on the front wall, so the blades aren't compartmentalized. I don't bag anything.
I'll experiment more, in 2014, as I just got the mower at the end of the season.
