    how do you guys take advantage of a ztr's capabilities(back and forth) without throwing grass into flowerbeds and the like? i have to go two full times around the yard before i can start going back and forth w/o throwing clippings into beds ect.

    A lot of us just have to blow out the clipping from the beds and such. However, I would just use an OCDC. At my job, we don't have one and it is a PITA.

    DO THE CUTTING IN TWICE AND IF YOU HAVE TO TURN TOWARD THE MULCH BED THEN USE THE DECK RAISING PETAL ,IF YOU HAVE ONE ,TO RAISE THE DECK OR JUST ALWAYS TURN AWAY FROM THE BED. CLEAN UP WITH THE BLOWER AT IDLE OR JUST ABOVE.

    Low throttle minimizes damage, but we lose a little mulch.
