This may sound like a stupid question but here it goes. How do you bag with those RD decks? Is it a hook up through the rear of the deck like a walker, or can you bag at all? Thanks!

Can't bag at all with one. There's no way. If anyone wanted to bag they would get a SD deck.

Hustlers 251 & 260 K's where rear discharge that bagged, The shortcut with the uppercut deck was rear discharge that bagged too.

John

I know where a 251K is. It needs some tlc.

with the type of mowing you would buy a rear discharge mower for, not sure why anyone would want to bag....

more so, a rear discharge is more a mulcher for the finer jobs. and a bush hawg on rough stuff where most mulch decks can't do well.

bagging....isn't mulching a better practice overall?

Not in Connecticut. If it very dry like it is now, It could be done. It gets very hard when you get to a irrigated yard tho.

Noup. I dont know about other countries in Eu but in Finland we do care what our lawns look. Broblem here is that often grass is luch, wet and weak, thats why mulching is dropping clumps, we use side dicharge everytime we can but some times there is narrow places we can not use it. New Grasshopper front mount deck is good because we can use same deck for mulching, side discard, rear discard and bagging.

good point John.

rear discharge decks, referring to mine only are not great in the wet, very messy as you've seen in my demo pics.

I tend to forget you guys are so much different to here and even weather/mowing in your different states is different, sorry about that.

thanks mate!

that baffle I removed...I had it put back on....it needed reshaping....now it actually works well lol.

Only thing left is getting the heating issue resolved and deere is onto this so I'm happy.

As I now know, I bought the 1st one of these in my country, and since only one other, a side discharge 997 have been sold up to recently, so basically they needed to get my dramas to get these units in my country running right.

Took a bit of jumping up and down but eventually I was heard, and having a good dealer who pushed things through helped, with pics etc.

I still say if deere had a rep on here it could of avoided all that negative stuff from me. but, that's all behind now....

the mower is awesome.
