    When mowing a clients residence.
    If a client wants the grass clippings gone.....

    Is it better to mow first then go back over and sweep them up?
    Mow first then go back over and use the bagger on your mower?
    Or Sweep as you mow or use bagger as you mow?

    Or is there another option?

    for times sake, i would just use a bagging setup on the first run. no need to waste your time on several passes. unless of course the grass is wet and or taller than normal then you might have clogging problems, just take less cut per pass then, as in 3/4 of your width.

    If you aren't concerned with the amount of clippings you'll have to take away, then just catch them on your initial pass. Like was said, no need to waste time.

    I'd have to say I prefer to suck rather than sweep.

    She, this is a family forum. I expect comments like that to be sent to my email not to the open forum...... You can sweep the floor later.
