    I have had to delay mowing several times due to rain. I was curious what some of your best mowing in the rain techniques are.:dizzy:

    Put the bag on, empty every pass or two passes to be sure the bag doesn't fill up or it will release wet clumps, and don't turn the blades off over concrete or you'll have a mess to clean up that won't come clean short of a pressure washer.

    Go slow, be careful, and I sure swear a lot because it sucks.

    The best technique I have found to mowing in the rain is sit at home.
