Hello,
I am new in the business and have purchased a 2002 Lesco wb. I need to know can I mulch with the gator blades with discharge chute open, or does the discharge chute need to be closed off like I do with my 22" push mower.
Thanking you all in advance for your input.

if you don't close off the shoot you will still blow out grass clippings that will be smaller than reg. blades but bigger than if you close off the shoot and install a mulch kit.

dude--congrats on the LESCO. I have an older LESCO 48 belt unit.

I have used the mulch unit and not used it. as far as I am concerned, it is about as easy to run over the yard twice as it is to try to mulch.

and IMO the gators are over rated. my LESCO does a great job of re-cutting under the deck so I use high lifts most of the time these days.
