New Super Z with Muffler at bottom

I was at my dealer the other day and I saw the new mowers with the muffler on the bottom of the engine. I always liked my muffler higher up. I could see this starting a fire during the fall season when you mulch leaves. Any opinions?

Trust me when I say we do everything possible to stay away from that "F" word. You really have no worries of the leaves. Pending on what model you are looking at we are now using a Kawasaki muffler. With the new muffler location you'll hear less engine noise and we'll have less muffler issues.

Time will tell. I had a fire on my old john deere homeowner belly mower, the muffler was at the bottom front of mower. I had to splice some wires to make things work.
