    Not I. All the mowers we have are mulch / rear bagger.
    One of the Huskys (POS) has an adapter but we have never used it.
    I feel that most of the time a 21 is being used in very small areas or parking islands or the side dis. would be a disadvantage. Just my thoughts

    I run snapper and toro trim mowers and mulch and bag only. I was just wondering if anyone discharged, just wondering because i can bag or put in my mulch plug and there is a side discharge adaptor i can buy but i never see any one around here using them. Is this a thing of the past???/

    the only time i ever side shoot is on large comm properties where neatness dosnt matter. the toro shoot is almost worthless as it cloges VERY easily. the snapper shoot is awesume and turns the snapper into a stellar grass cutter

    I just bought a Toro 21" personal pace this year and also bought the side discharge chute because I side discharge for the most part, unless i'm bagging.
