i know we have touched on this several times but I am still a little but well confused on how to approach the lawns with heavy and medium leafs this year. I guess from the input i have recieved mulching is the best bet..do you guys side discharge then or put on mulching plates??? Also my dealer thinks the only way to go is with bagging of course..but 2,000 for a system wow!!! no wonder he thinks that...any other tips,,,,????
