I just bought the mower and gave it a shot last night.  If i use both the mulcher and side discharge attachment, will it then discharge mulched grass?  Or will it just sit at the bottom of the mower as i continue to move forward and NOT discharge?

Hi Brian, we have changed your problem into a question.  You cannot use both the mulch plug and the side discharge attachment at the same time.  With the mulch plug inserted, the grass will mulch and discharge from the bottom of the mower as you continue to move forward, as you stated.  It is not possible to mulch and discharge it to the side at the same time. If you look inside mower, behind the rear discharge door, you'll see that when the mulch plug is inserted, it is impossible for the grass to get up to the side discharge attachment because it is "plugged" by the mulch plug.  We hope this answers your question.
