    i just purchased gator blades from an exmark dealer. i have heard to put only 1 gator blade on and a regular blade on the other. has anyone heard of this?
    How well do gator blades cut, without the mulching kit?
    ~Thanks, Jason

    uhh not sure who told you this but you want to run the same blades of each spindle. so two gators or two factory, it may throw off your deck a little and make it vibrate running two dif blades

    Different blades will not cause deck vibration. Unbalanced blades cause deck vibration.

    Remember, Gator Blades are designed to only cut 2" of grass.
