Even drying grass tends to clog up the discharge chute on my paddock area. I imagine a lot of these small ride-on mowers are used for slightly rougher areas of gardens rather than pristine lawns. As an engineer, I have modified the lower area of my discharge chute so that it discharges at low level on the right-hand side. The mower now functions perfectly on rough, even damp grass.
The manufacturers should offer a side discharge facility. This would make the machine much more versatile for the damper British climate.
Otherwise, the machine is very good, seems well designed and with my modified discharge arrangement is a very satisfying purchase.
