Man, I really love the rear discharge deck, I can mow from any direction, and it NEVER piles or rows big clumps like the side discharge does, don't know why, and don't care

Never mowed with any rear discharge. With the rear tires there, I figured they would stripe the clippings.

I loved the rear discharge finishing mower on the 3pt I had, I would have to actually use an under the belly rear discharge a couple times in different scenarios to see which one I like better. The clumpyness isn't bad as long as the grass isn't too long or wet with a side discharge.

No it doesn't stripe the clippings, the chute is much wider so imagine throwing the same amount of clippings from twice the size of hole, plus shooting them backwards and you get a nice even distribution. The big thing for me is not having to worry which direction you mow, saves a ton of time
