    I checked out the ULTRA BLADE sponsor and liked what I saw, the cut and discharge effect on what looked like dry turf. I'm thinking about using these for cool season turf w/ a leaf coating for the mulching side of it. Anyone have any experience with using these blades on damp turf and leaves? I would tend to believe that, being damp conditions, may lend itself to clumping and clogging a TRAC-VAC tube. ?

    What are ultra blades? I looked around on the page, and couldn't even find them. Nevermind,..I found them. This place has just become so ridiculously cluttered with stuff that you can't make out one from the other.

    It's kinda like the Meg-Mo blades. They'll have to give me a set before I'll try them.

    Couldn't agree w/ u more Richard. They wanted me to alter my spindles to make those work.

    There could be some serious liablity issues altering spindles. Sounds to me like you speaking to someone that was a salesman and not an engineer.

    You ever wonder why some people seem to have a lot of trouble with their mowers? Watch the third video. It's a freakin lawn mower dude, not a bush hog. I would also like to see the results of using these blades in the real world.

    1: Single pass results through the thick Northeastern - month of May - ryes and fescues.

    2: Single pass results through August Bahia.

    3: Single pass results through September Transition zone Crabgrass.
