Mulch, discharge, or bag your grass clippings. A similar lawn mower to this with these kinds of features is really perfect for our lawn.

I used to bag all of my grass cuttings, and now I wonder why I ever used a lawn mower with a bag system. With a mulch lawn mower cutting the lawn is so much easier and a lot less work. Many lawnmowers have this 3 in one option, but we have to say that mulching is by far the best configuration to use.

We really like the front wheel propulsion for our lawn,  even though it is a level lawn. Cutting the lawn is really effortless, and all you need to do to slow down or change direction is to lean slightly on the handle, which lifts the front wheels off the ground. When this occurs, you have less traction, and the forward speed naturally slows down. You can also easily turn the lawn mower in this configuration as well. Just lean on the handle and turn the mower, let it down, and away you go. We like this configuration much better than the rear-wheel drive configuration for lawnmowers.

We also only use the lawn mower in mulch mode, saving a great deal of time. We no longer need to bag the grass clippings and then put them in the garbage. The grass clippings go right back into the lawn, so the nutrients are added back in, and the grass clippings protect the roots from the hot sun. The ground does not dry out as fast on those hot summer days.

We also do not have to rake heavy grass clippings and then bag them to be placed into the garbage. We have a compost bin and used to place our grass clippings in the bins. They would get full, and then we would have to empty them and turn them over while adding ground to the clippings to increase the natural decay of the clippings, which is a lot of hard work. No longer. It is so easy cutting the grass now with this lawn mower’s features, such as the mulching blade. We also do not have those stinky garbage bags full of grass clippings that are slowly rotting while we wait for garbage day. Our garbage is only picked up every two weeks! You can imagine what condition those grass clippings would be in at the end of two weeks.
