Grandstand mulching blades/stripe kit

Just visited my dealer today and purchased a new GrandStand 48/23. Sure hoping the problems on this forum are not my problems! Dealer wasnt clear about mulching blades. I did order the mulch kit, which he said came with the Recycler blades. I asked about the Atomic blades and he told me that these were not for use with the the mulching kit, but were used with the discharge chute. Can anyone offer authoritative guidance on Recycler vs Atomic mulch blades?

The GrandStand brochure indicates a stripe kit available in 2009. My choice of this mower was made in part on this representation. Anyone know the status of the stripe kit and how to get one? Dealer didnt know anything about it - made a few calls but no answers.

Thanks,

WT

Your dealer was correct, Recycler blades are included with the Recycler mulching kit and Atomic (toothed) blades should be used in side discharge mode only, similar to Gator blades. They were not designed to be used with the Recycler mulching baffles and kickers.

The roller striper accessory kit is still in engineering development and not available at this time. Unfortunately we don’t have an ETA at this point.

I e-mailed Toro Customer Service about getting a Stripping Kit for the Grandstand in May 2009 and got a reply a few days later saying the Kit will be available in 2009. WTF. I replyed with, since this is May 2009 can you be a little more specific and never got a reply.

Go to www.bigleaguelawns.com for a stripping kit on the Grandstand. I have a 48" Deck and recommend the 39" Stripping Kit.

A striping roller kit is in the final stages of testing and is expected to be in production later this fall.

I don't have grandstand experience but I did find on a Gravely that the raptor/gator type blades improved its mulching performance, especially with leaves. The higher lift seemed to help a lot. Experiment around I'd say.
