OCDC best thing and trim first helps keep you away a bit more.
dont point discharge chute at beds and trim from right to left as the heads turns counterclockwise and will shoot the grass to the left keeping it out of beds and then go around with blower at idle to clean up any stray clippings. works every time.
What is OCDC?
Operator controlled discharge chute. Have them on all our mowers. I won't use a mower without one.
Operator Controlled Discharge Chute. Basically a lever or button that lets you close the chute on the side so there is no clippings that blow out.
If you practice with the trimmer you can throw the grass a certain way. If you tilt it the right way you can even throw it into the air pretty far! Try trimming right to left with a left side cant on the trimmer as to throw the grass down and to the left.
I agree with the others use a OCDC or mulch kit. While trimming go from left to right walking forward using left hand for the throttle .
omg google fail
Are you trying to say that I failed by not googling? If so, check your google results...
If I have to turn towards a bed(left), I will turn to the right and back up in order to not shoot clippings in bed. There are some places where you cant turn certain ways in order to avoid it, like with beds on each side of a grass strip, and for those I either bag or brings the mower down to 2/3 throttle and blow the beds gently afterwards.
