Daniel, if you don't mind me asking. Why do you bag your grass? Mulching supplies needed nutrients for it. My bad is new. Never used it.

I also bag my grass clippings due to having 2 small dogs. If I mulch they track grass into the house.

To be honest, I bag because I have 2 dogs, as the other respondent had said, two schnauzers, white paws.  I do however, compose the lawn clippings and use in the vegetable beds, but, for the sake of clean paws and feet (mine) I always grew up with the lawns close to house (croquet) clipped and bagged.  back pasture not so, but always loved being barefoot, and the EGO does an excellent job of bagging, if I do say, in terms of not leaving residual grass.  EGO was nice enough to respond by sending me a new bag!  Don't get me wrong, I am very green minded, have gone solar, use LED lighting, recycle, but when you have your toes in a nice green lawn, (watered with recycled rainwater, or the old pump well - if needed) it just brings back grassy toe free memories!  And clean puppy paws.

Hi Daniel, you make some good points about bagging with regards to your dogs etc. I was just curious if you have ever tried mulching your lawn?

I ask this only because some people I know have never used a mulching mower, only an old side discharge gas mower. When mulching my lawn I never even get to see the grass clippings ... they are chopped up so small they just fall down in between the blades of grass and I never pay them a second thought.

Now if you're already happy with the bagging routine as far as having grass clippings for the flower beds etc. then I guess it doesn't matter, I just wondered if you had ever given mulching a try with the Ego?

Hi Blue,

If the grass is damp, the mulch clippings stick to the feet like glue.  I've even experienced this.  I have to vacuum the back porch after cutting the grass.  When it is really dry, it isn't a problem.

I could see that being an issue when cutting damp/wet grass for sure.

I just remember cutting grass when I was younger, with a side discharge mower, and having grass all over my shoes when I was done. With my Ego (and previous corded electric mulching mower) I can cut the lawn and when I'm done, the only clippings on my shoes are from the string trimmer.

But yeah, I could see wet grass being another issue altogether. Just cut dry! :-)

Then I get razor burn  :).   I remember the days of side discharge, good lord that was a mess, but it did leave nice lines in the yard.  I love mulching.

funny you mention wet grass, the other week, i was near done and was "caught" in the rain with less than 5 more lines to cut.....say 200 feet.....the grass was so thick on the bottom of mower the blade was embedded and i had to glove and remove .... i too am a big fan of lines in lawn.... it was diagonals this week :-)

Daniel,

I purchased Permatex Silicone Lubricant off of Amazon and it really did get rid of that exact problem for me.  BTW, you can buy an attachment for your mower that helps maintain the "lines" longer.  It's in my cart.   I'm a huge fan of "line designs".  Last week it was a spiral, started in the middle and started cutting in circles until I was done.  Not very efficient, but makes people look!

What attachment?

I have a striping kit but it doesn't attach to the Ego. Does it? I'm sure it would be too heavy since the Ego isn't self propelled.
