21 inch bagging?

    I read the other day that some of you said that mowing with a 21 inch cut would almost always require bagging but not so with a larger cut. I don't understand why. Why is this? Thanks

    I'm not sure what you have previously read. Therefore, I hope I do not step on anyones toes or I occassionally use a 21 Exmark (I really miss my 2-cycle Toro). I seldom have to bag. However, if it's 5 or 6" wet fescue, its bag time. I think it would be for any small mower.

    I rarely ever bag with my 21". Even with wet fescue like cward said, I try to get away with mulch cutting and then putting the RedMax EB-8000 on it. Blows those clumps away.:)
