The grass tends to be wet and needs to be bagged most of the time.

That's not a benefit of a 21" mower…That's a condition of the turf and a method used for collecting clippings.

AW you need to relax a bit. The 21" and now the 30" mower suit our demographic and growing conditions. We do about a 150 lawns a week.
