    Rear discharge sounds great but I'm concerned about the quality of cut. Will the clippings be discharged too quick(thus being too long). I always trim my yards before I cut to prevent long pieces of grass left over. That would be a real bummer if my mower did the same.

    By the way, I had a 27 kaw lq Super Z bought in Dec. 2003. Had more mechanical problems than I could post here. You guys with Right-of-Way Equip. Co. helped me with a swap for the 26 kaw lq (with the engine laid over on its side). 130 hrs. so far and it has been absolutely awesome. The new deck with the fusion blades is sweet. :waving:

    Rear discharge is what it is, it has its places, and a fine finish cut is not its place.
    That being said, it cuts average length grass very well, taller stuff you may get some long grass laying on top of cut grass.
