Gator Blades or Other Suggestions

PJ I'm a homeowner cutting 2 acres of Kentucky Blue/Fescue blend lawn in Michigan. I own a 2004 (early deck) Super Z with a 72" deck. I was having windrow issues with the grass discharge when I first purchased the mower a few years back. Since then I've done the deck opening enlargement and installed the 352542 Blade spacer kit with the flat blades. Windrows are no longer an issue but I'm still a little unhappy with the size of the clippings being discharged. Would the gator blades help with this and if so what is the proper gator number to replace the Hustler # 795260.

Thanks, Bud

Gators will "shred" the grass into smaller pieces for sure.
The part # you need is Hustler part # 794867

The Gator blades came in yesterday and I installed them. The grass blade discharge is much improved, a lot smaller. I had quite a bit of browned up discharge laying on the grass from my last cut (several days of rain had the grass pretty tall) and the gators chopped that up pretty good as well. I only wish I could have gotten the newer Magnum G6 blade in the same length. I called Oregon and they said they aren't making that one yet for my length. These are doing fine for now so I will stick with them.
