Well, my Home Depot special bit the dust yesterday, so I went out and bought the John Deere JX75 that I had been wanting. Came home last night and mowed my yard with it, loved the cut, love the machine. Only problem is, it comes set up to bag. The mulch plug has to be bought separately, for about $20, according to the dealer. On top of that, the mulch plugs are backordered, so that means today I have to bag all the lawns I do. Why would JD sell their mowers that way? Why not just sell it with the mulch plug and blade? Isn't that what most of us use them for, or is it just me?
