Mulching:
Reflects a combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how completely the mower distributed its clippings over the lawn's surface.

Bagging:
Denotes a combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and a measurement of the effective capacity of the grass bag, determined when the bag was full or when the chute clogged and stopped collecting clippings.

Comment:
I am currently using this tractor with the snow blower attachment and it is a beast.This tractor has great power and is as tough as nails.I don't know what the reveiwer is was talking about but mine has a washout funtion.I love the reverse option and the electronic PTO.I like the fact that the battery is in the front where it belongs.I also purchased the 3 bin bagger which fills evenly and is easy to unload.I have had no problems with this tractor at all,zero issues.I would highly recommend this product.

With 40 hours on this mower the engine began using oil. spoke with Briggs they said it had a blown head gasket. Bought the service manual then bought the parts from Briggs to repair it. The head gaskets looked new when they were removed went ahead and replaced them made no difference the engine still smoking and using oil. Buy a mower with something other than a Briggs engine you will be sorry if you buy this mower.
