A combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how evenly clippings were dispersed from the side-discharge chute.

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 bought this mower from Retailer seven years ago and it has performed flawlessly every year. I have done no maintenance, which I don't recommend as an example, and it has still soldiered on. Not too loud for the hour it takes to do the lawn, which is a constant run for the mower. My first riding mower. The only feature which would make this better would be zero turn, which is a different frame than I have. Overall, money well spent from my perspective.

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.
