engaging the clutch

This is what a lawn mower mechanic explained to me. I have a Bobcat and the instructions also say to engage at low rpm's, here was his reasoning for that. He said its much better for the engine if you put a load on it at high rpms, yes you will burn out the electronic clutch faster but you will save on your engine life. Which is cheaper to replace. He stated the reason bobcat states low rpm is because they have to warranty the clutch and not the engine so they don't care if the engine fouls. Makes sense what he said. I engage a full rpm haven't had a problem in two years, I have an extra electronic clutch ready to go (just part of my back up supplies)
