I would charge the same as you bill for with the bagger mowers. That being said I'm not sure a rear discharge deck is going to produce favorable results. I'd keep the bagging units.

I guess it depends on your properties. I assume you're running Walker GHS units now? Why not get 52" side discharge decks for your GHS units, then you can bag in the spring and fall and discharge in the summer when things aren't growing as fast?

For what its worth, the belt drive side discharge deck does not cut as well as the gear drive decks

I think he will be favorably impress by the 52" rear discharge/mulch deck. We use to bag everything because we didn't like the look or the clean up needed when using a side discharge deck. We've been running the 52" decks on 2 Super B's for a few seasons now and are completely satisfied to say the least. We have not bagged a thing in 3 years and have had nothing but compliments. The newer 48" mulching decks on a MB are just as impressive! The lawns really appreciate the nutrients from the clippings that are being returned too!
