If you are only doing bermuda no problem but if you are doing fescue or any grass similar this thing mulches so well it turn into a fine paste. I plugs the whole thing up and as soon as you let go of the blade stop it will drop 15lbs of grass paste on the ground then there is another 10 lbs inside the mower you will need to mow. Doesn't matter if you have the bagger open and the side shoot as well. Never thought something could mulch so well that its a actual problem. Anyone using the Timemaster and not having the same problem? I have 3 yard including mine that have fescue and we havent had rain in 2 weeks and its a nightmare to mow.
