    lol, I just cant seeing using any really larger than that 30" I looked at today. Though I did find a pretty good deal maybe on a scag 36 but that is still up in the air.

    The grass tends to be wet and needs to be bagged most of the time.

    That's not a benefit of a 21" mowerÂ…That's a condition of the turf and a method used for collecting clippings.

    Could you please explain the benefits of using a 21" mower in WA and Oregon?

    AW you need to relax a bit. The 21" and now the 30" mower suit our demographic and growing conditions. We do about a 150 lawns a week.
