View Full Version : Mulching w/Fastrak 48

12-05-2010, 03:07 PM
I have tried to mulch leaves with the Gator Blades that the dealer recommended to me and am not happy at all. There is a lot of mulch that is thrown up on top of the operator platform. The right front of the deck shoots out leaves from under the deck. I have tried re-adjusting the deck to factory specks to no avail.
Suggestions would be appreciated

I don't think my customers will allow me to cut that short even in the winter time. Maybe this is just something I will have to put up with at the higher setting. I did try lowering the deck to 2-1/2" and it helped tremendously.
Thanks for the help
