    I bought the side discharge to go on my new Toro Proline. How well does this machine mulch as opposed to bag? I have heard many say that it mulches like a champ while others say the side chute does not work well. Thanks.

    The machine mulches very well. I use a gator blade on mine.

    2 cycle Suzuki 4.5 hp -- I only side discharge and bag, have had no problems with this machine. Your grass conditions are probably different than here, I have to slow down a bit in the spring (lush and wet) and fly in the summer (fine & dry). You bought the best use it well and enjoy.

    I got the 2 cycle and it mulches lousy. I use the side chute and is works great. I need to get a gator blade which may help.
