    We started discharging the lawns, as bagging has and is old...however...it makes quite a mess, usually have to blow out mulch beds alot. What do your crews do to keep things cleaner?

    Why not add an OCDC to your machine or leave the bag on when you're near the beds? This would eliminate the time spent blowing out the beds.

    Well...............:)


    Can do the radius enough times so that the back and forth does not throw the clipping into the beds.

    Install a plate over the opening and use mulch blades.

    Do a search for "mulching"

    Lots of great threads

    make or buy something to close discharge then put on MEG MO to cut up grass and you will not have any more lumps on lawn

    its just a matter of learning how to use the disharge method ,and leave very little residue of grass . u just gotta learn how. but i think u will like it once u got it down. good luck.

    Try cutting it higher if u can, the only alternative I use is to go back over it till its gone. Last resort is to bag, sometimes the shortest time solver.
