High lift blades on 34 gravely pro stance?

Tried out the new machine today, worked awesome! Cut was clean! Except for the clumping it made through the chute. Grass was a little long due to lots of rain. Anybody have a prostance with different blades? How about gator blades without a mulch kit? What would you guys recommend? Thanks!

I recommend using the mower for awhile before you jump to conclusions.

I,ve never used a high lift blade, only gators on my push mowers. It does leave a very nice cut, im just wondering if the grass does get too long, will gator blades do a better job of discharging?

Gator blades won't discharge any better. Stick with whats on it and give it a chance.

Ok Greg, I'll leave it be for now. My chute is a hard flexible plastic, any ideas on what to do about lifting it to go through gates. Today I had take 1 foot off, reach down, lift it up, and move forward a bit until it stayed up on its own, then hop back on and continue! PITA!

Just use a bungee cord to keep the chute up.
