    We side discharge, and use mulching blades. We don't just leave clumps of cut grass on the lawn, we use backpack blowers to disperse them and/or double cut if needed. I've found this takes less time then bagging, and there are no clippings to get rid of. Our lawns look like they've been bagged, but without the extra work. My customers are very happy not to pay the extra cost of bagging, and I am happy to save time.

    You guys should see the size of my wigglers. The bream and catfish just love em'.

    I used to mulch, but now you cannot compete in our market unless you're bagging everything.

    Damn .. Sorry, I've always used a bagging system for my lawn mower 21" ..

    Uhm, when you guys say you mulch the grass with your lawn mower doesnt it leave grass clippings when you use the side chute?

    You're cutting grass and with the side chute wide open isn't grass shooting all over the place?

    What's a good mulching mower?

    Mulch everything, side discharge when wet, take only during spring and fall clean ups...dump fees too expensive
