I have gators on my 32" scag w/b, they work very nice but still throw many clippings across yard to later be cut. Should i put on a mulching plate or no? Any of you use mulching plates if so do you like them????

Give it a try and see what happens. I have a discharge plate for my Grasshopper that I use in tight areas. Other wise I just let the grass fly!

If you are talking about just covering the discharge chute, I tried this and the grass was wet with dew, with a pretty god cover of leaves and it did ok but at the chute it would leave a pile of mulched leaves. I did not like results took it off and am putting mulching kit on.

Just put a mulch kit on my eXmark and gator blades. The leaves are falling and it does a good job on them. My only dislike is along walks and drives the deck lets out some debris. Saves alot more time than bagging.
