I ran a RD 72 Woods mower last summer, with the chain guard across the back,,
I did not EVER see clumping, but, the cut grass distribution was not perfect.
This year, I purchased a Woods PRD 7200, with no chain guard,,
WOW,, the distribution of the mower without the guard is nice,,
I am wondering if there is any reason to run the chain guard, especially in my rural secluded setting?
The chain guard off the RD72 will fit the PRD7200, so is not the issue, I have the guard,,,
I have mowed 20-30 acres with the non guarded mower, I have never seen anything fly out of the back..
Am I missing some reason that I should have the optional chain guard installed?
