    mulching sucks, just puts more load on the mower and helps the grass clump up.
    on my 21" i prop open the side chute so i can actually mow. 48" is side of course.

    bagging is a pain in the a$$ .. if you charge enough i guess fine

    personally, i like to mow and go.

    Bagging in the northwest is a necessity in the spring for manicured lawns. Although mulching doesn't hurt a lawn the idea it helps or feeds it is not 100% accurate either. Nitrogen favors decomposition and if fertilized some of the nitrogen will go to the decomposing grass as opposed to feeding it.
