6.Has side discharge
?

The mower can discharge the cut grass to the side. The cut grass helps to fertilise the lawn and helps preserve moisture in the summer, and means that you do not have to empty a grass bag/box. However, this is not as effective as a mulching lawn mower.

Cut quality

1.Has mulching feature
?

With a mulching feature the grass cuttings are further cut into finely chopped grass which is then expelled onto the lawn, fertilising it and making it more drought resistant. This also means you do not have to empty a grass bag/box.

6. longer maximum cutting height
