Mean Green’s optional Rear Discharge deck can be equipped as an open rear discharge deck or set up with 80% mulching baffles. With the baffles removed, the rear discharge deck performs similar to most rear discharge decks, but grass dispersal is evened out with the help of the opposite spinning blade on the right side of the deck.
If mulching of grass is desired, a steel baffle set can be bolted into place in minutes. This mulch kit will allow about 80% of the grass to be mulched and about 20% discharged out the rear. This mulching deck leaves behind very little grass on the top surface, since most grass is cut up so fine that it falls below the grass line. It does take more power and cutting drive speeds may need to be reduced, but the results are impressive!
