Rear Discharge Decks

 October 18, 2016

There are times when you want to bag the mulch you mow, and there are times when discharging off to the side is preferable. There are also times when neither of these choices are ideal. For commercial mowers, certain locations come with side discharge difficulties. Medians, road sides, campgrounds, parking lots, cemeteries, and areas with heavy landscaping all require that you discharge to the rear or not at all.

Lazer Z X-Series

Exmark’s most powerful, productive mower, the Lazer Z X-Series, with the awesome UltraCut Rear Discharge cutting deck.

Mowers with rear discharge cutting decks also have the benefit of providing more efficient and sound-controlled mowing—two factors that play a big role when commercial mowing is your business. Everyone wants the perfect, well-manicured look of a freshly cut lawn, but few people want to be put out by lengthy mow times, and unsightly clumps.

The Exmark Solution

If you want controlled, uniform clipping distribution that both looks great and is healthy for turf, rear discharge decks are a great option.  With a full suite of rear discharge cutting deck options for our top-selling models, including select Radius and Lazer Z models, you can increase your productivity without sacrificing cut quality.

Rear discharge cutting decks provide distinct advantages to the modern landscaper, including:

  • Counter rotating blades for more efficient processing
  • Fuel savings of up to 20 percent
  • Uniform distribution in tight spaces
  • No overprocessing of clippings
  • Molded bumpers on both sides of the deck for easy maneuverability

These features are offered in addition to the standard high-power motors and quality construction you’ve come to expect from an Exmark mower.

Why Choose Rear Discharge Decks?

Controlled clipping discharge is ideal for populated or restricted areas, especially when used as part of a regular maintenance schedule. These mowers can also be used in rough-cut situations (like ditches), as each blade has more capacity and can handle larger jobs without damaging the equipment. And because the mower doesn’t overprocess the clippings, you can get faster results without putting too much strain on your team.

When used as part of a fleet of Exmark mowers, all of which are designed for commercial-quality cutting and seamless results, a rear discharge zero-turn mower is one of the most valuable pieces of equipment you’ll own.

Get great looking results, high efficiency, and rely on the signature high-strength alloy steel and durable construction Exmark is known for. With a rear discharge deck, you can expand your services and get more done in a day.
