We rotate bagging and mulching... side disharging is pretty tough on our bermuda grass... only can be done in really large expansive areas... around here if it's just being discharged, it's only on the real junkie lawnsor on no traffic common areas (where poeple don't walk up to it to see it up close). You'd have to quadruple cut a nice residential lawn and spend way too much time compared to mulching. Most of the higher end lawns still want bagging which for us, is a necessary evil. That's where the Walker pays back big time.

The most popular riding mower seen in this area being used commercially is the Walker, and I'm right in there with the rest of them. So... I'm guessing that 90% of the places out here are "collected".

Be careful in assuming that mulching is always better for turf, because too much too fast can actually smother grass and create problems.

Mulch or discharge if possible. Return nutrients to the soil. Save time and money on fuel and employee hourly wages by not having to drive to and sometimes maintain dumpsite with other equip.
