I have a sears 6 hp lawnmower, for some reason when I cut the grass

So the manufacturer can have a common design and reduce the number of
parts they need to make and handle. I also have a 6 HP mulcher that can
be a bagger if you open the plastic door and attach a bag or they could
fit it with a non mulching blade and a bag right out of the box. I
strictly use it as a mulcher for the reasons noted earlier.
Change the blade. On my honda there is a mulching blade and a "high
lift" blade. The mulcher mulches- and leaves the clippings in
place. . . the high lift blade cleans the lawn.
Unless you're using the clippings for mulch or in a compost pile it is
foolish to bag them. They are good for your lawn. Take the bag
off and enjoy.
