question for those who cut commercial accounts

for your walk behinds or zero turn mowers do u use a mulching kit or a side discharge?. since there's always trees that are mulched and you want as less grass as possible to go over the mulch.. thanks

We use our Walker mowers to bag at entrance ways and highly visible areas and mulch on areas with Mid mount ZTR mowers where you cant see clipping as close.

Side discharge 100% of the time with Dixies and John Deere, even in high visibility areas. Never had a problem with covering up mulch. I do have to use the OCDC on a few places were the beds are near my discharge side.

Depends....

We discharge if we can. If it is noticable we will bag.
Most places will specify if the want it bagged. Just make sure it looks nice when you are done.

I discharge the majority of the time. Its faster, and i think it looks better than when you mulch.

Never tried doubles yet, but will this year for sure.

Side discharge except in real tight areas where everything would get thrown everywhere then the WB or 48" ZTR with mulch plate.
