I just bought an Encore walkbehind 32 inch. I was wondering has anyone used the mulching blades, one guy I no called them Gator Blades and said they worked well. Thoughts or suggestions please.

i had gator blades on my 48''WB. they are great for mulching or side discharge but not the best if you need to bag

Don't like them. Acutally worked worse in my opinion.

OEM is the way to go.

I would use the ones that are on it and IF you don't like the way it cuts you
might consider a swap, it's one of those things each Lco has their own preference,
I myself also use hi lifts (OEM).

Gator blades make mush in lush conditions. Measure your blades/holes and go to Oregon's site and see if the Exmark mulch blade is similar in length /hole diameter.

I really like my gator blades. I have noticed that in some wet conditions, they do tend to clump a little, but not really too bad. I've used gators on a couple different mowers and they have worked great on each unit.
