I have used Gator Blades on several pieces of equipment. The quality is equivalent to an OEM blade. On a non-mulching deck, the cut appears to be the same as the OEM blade. On a mulching deck, the clippings are slightly finer. They do a great job mulching leaves with either style of deck which is why I use them.

The standard/original 3in1 Gators do not create as much lift as a hi-lift or the new G5 or G6 Gators by Oregon. However, due to the added lift/vacuum of the G5/G6 blades they have recommended they be used for side-discharging...(or possibly bagging). The added lift/vacuum will contribute toward more blowout.

Its all we use on our Wrights. No kit, just a blocker plate. No problems with blowout or stringers. I know they are for side discharge but they work fine for us on summer turf. We do switch to flats if gets too dry to hold down on dust.
