I know a lot of guys run GATOR BLADES. From what I understand, they have great lift & mulch also.

i stick with OEM blades, i have tried some of the cheaper aftermarket brands and they just wuldnt hold up. They would loose their edge a lot faster than stock and they seemed to knick real easy to

Depends are you mulching or stright discharge / bagging? I have 3 sets of blades for each machine. We change blades weekly based on usage, then once we have 2 sets of old blades, they get repaired and sharpened. We mulch almost everything and rely on the OEM blades for the most part. I use gator blades in the fall when we have leaves and sweetgum balls.

Hope this helps. Try out a couple of diff sets stick with the blades that you like best.

Does your mower just literally mulch up the gumballs? Or do they become medieval projectiles? :laugh:
Do they mulch up best when dry or damp?

I like gator blades for some machines. My Bobcat mowers run the OEM blade though. They cut and stripe awsome so I leave it alone. Works good reguardless of the season or if I'm bagging as well!
