    +1 on the rear discharge deck. Some companies that mow in restricted movement areas or are concerned with discharge damage use these.

    the dude is thinking here
    You better listen
    I would pick Dixie Chopper they come with chute blocker from factory I mow 60 acres Campus
    With chute blocker you can use the mower as a blower clean walks driveways parking lots and never have get off mower to use a blower With a mower with chute blocker closed you can drive forward blow things off at a high speed

    This is why every mower needs to be a mulch mower.

    No not really. Mowers just need to be set up for what works best for each individual mowing operation.
