I am hoping to purchase a new ZTR next year. I am looking heavily at the new JD models, but have a few questions. I'm located NE of Atlanta GA. 1 - Does the MOD door open all the way, meaning does it flip up or does it stick straight out when open? 2 - How well does it really mulch? I have no experince mulching. I don't wanna buy something and not be able to use it. I mow Bermuda and Fescue. I'd like to be able to mulch the Bermuda yards and leaves in the fall. I'd appreciate any information you could provide.
