    Thanks guys for the advice, leave it on till spring cleanups are through will work for me. Just anxious to take it off. With it on I can't see much while backing up to objects like trees and shrubs, not to mention it takes up much more space on the trailer.

    You don't need to put the discharge cover and mulch plates back on, do you? Can't you just discharge? On my Exmark the blower and tube only take a minute to take off. I discharge most of the time and if I need to bag I just put the blower and tube on. Like I said earlier I leave the hopper on, but space on my trailer isn't an issue and I like the extra weight for better traction actually.

    Yes Daryl, I do, my client base is residential course communities. Side discharge wouldn't be an option.

    Why do you want it off if you bag the grass anyway?

    OK...I'm confused...why do you have a bagger then if you don't bag? And why do you want to take it off? :dizzy:

    Nevermind....I'm just gonna bite my tongue and unsubscribe, lol.

    I don't think your confused, you just have a comprehention problem.


    He bags for spring and fall clean ups as stated before, and mulches after spring clean ups are done until its time to do fall clean ups. Not hard to understand at all.

    Look dude....you said, "He mulches and bags for spring and fall clean ups."

    And he replies "I don't bag, I mulch."

    That's not confusing? Personally I don't think he knows wtf he's doing, lol.
