My gate opening is exactly 44 inches so I am worried about squeezing thru. I looks like I can hold up the grass chute to reduce to 41.5". If I purchase the mulching kit which gets rid of the chute would the lowest dimensions still remain 41.5". If so then I'm sold.
Bryan, yes with the chute up or removed, the mower is less than 44 inches wide. Even with the mulching kit installed.
