    pro- no clippings in the beds

    cons- wont spread out clippings, which means more clumps

    Only way to bag is an expensive grass collection unit

    Rear discharge mowers are specialty mowers for cemetaries and whatever that you would have to go down narrow strips and not blow clippings on whatever. Mainly cemetaries.
