Have you ever wondered what all the buzz is about with rear discharge mowers?   You hear good things and not so good things about how they work, what they will or will not do.  Some people just love them and others… not so much.   Let’s take a look at what a great rear discharge mower can offer.

Ventrac has developed rear discharge mowers  that stand out above the rest and are made to perform.    With a mowing deck available for every tractor series and whether you have a half acre or plenty of land, mowing will be hassle free, reliable and your lawn will look professionally groomed.

A FEW FACTS FOR REVIEWING:

Ventrac rear discharge finish mowers give you a high performance cut along with professional striping for your lawn.  With no side chute in the way, it is easier to maneuver around trees, landscaping, buildings and other obstacles.   Rear discharge mowers will send the grass out the back of the mower and keep debris away from buildings, landscaping or sidewalks areas, while still creating a professionally cut lawn.

Trimming Features:

Because trimming can be a real hassle, a rear discharge mower makes a fantastic deck for trimming lawns.  You can mow close to flower bed, trees, and other landscaping from either side of the mowing deck.  Ventrac rear discharge mowers are a great choice for mulching with the optional mulching blades.

    I have 2 acres and 50 trees which provide a ton of leaves in the fall. l am using a tractor and pulling a home-made Trac Vac type item , and occasionally using a rear bagging system. There has to be a rear discharge lawn tractor that will throw grass and leaves far enough so they will go directly into a simple pull behind trailer.. This should eliminate the Trac Vac. In addition, perhaps some sort of additional mulching blades could be added to the mower deck to further chop up the leaves so the trailer would not have to be emptied so often. I used to have a driveway leaf vac that had large “blender” type blades in front of a steel vacuum wheel. The leaves and grass were almost dust when they hit the collection bag. Sadly, that company is no longer in business.

    responding to the leaf problem you have…ventrac makes a vac system for their tractor. Also, if for residential use, one could use a rear discharge ventrac and pull behind a lawn sweeper, although I’ve never seen one more than 50″ wide.
