Delima, 1mower, help please

hi, most of you lco seem like you have some success so I turn for help. I have had one lawn buis that finally failed for various reasons. Quality was not a reason. my ? is I can only afford only 1 mower but my problem is 1/2 of customers want it bagged the other1/2 want it mulched, I will have a zero turn either toro500 series or lazer z, and as we all no it's to much to keep changing mower over so what do I do. all help will be appreciated. thanks Bill

use double blades and side discharge when not bagging. If its leaves too much on top then go over it again. (I rarely have to do this) It gives a look close to full mulching but you can go a bit faster and not as much tendency to clump.
This is what I do but I decide when I will and won't bag NOt the customer.

Based on the fact your in the south, you have to deal with warm season grasses. I don't like the look of side discharge on them. So, you have a dilema. Maybe a bagging unit and an OCDC like the quickchute for mulching.
