Here is a question about side discharging with a toro 36" as i have not found much using the search feature. For the past several years i've been using a couple 2 cycle 21" toro prolines and have been pleased with their mulching appearence. However, i soon will be buying a 36" toro hydro w/sulky and i am wondering how well the lawns will look using the side discharge? My only experience with side discharge is on 21" lawnboys and it always looked terrible(dead, brown grass on top of lawns the next day). Will the 36" w/ side discharge cut grasser finer, or less mess on top of lawn? Why would side discharge be useful? Any responses to such simple questions are appeciated. Also, on a side note, it is sure going to be nice standing on a sulky vs. walking this year.
