    Grassin,

    If you like that put a set of the solid airfoil Excalibur blades on. But a word of caution. Not everyone finds cutting grass as much fun as some of us. People often stare when you’re riding around with a really big grin on your face………..or maybe it’s just me that they do that too?

    Thanks,

    Terry

    Grassin,

    Ooops! I should've read your post more closely. Stick with the mulching blades.

    What is the difference in the notched Excaliburs and the solid Excaliburs? I have the notched on there right now, is the solid a better blade?

    Grassin,

    The Notched airfoil blade is a high lift blade with a 3/4 circle of material removed from the inside of the airfoil at the transition point between the airfoil and the flat portion of the blade. The solid airfoil is a high lift as well. The material at the transition between the airfoil and the flat portion of the blade however is left intact for a more gradual transition.

    Both blades perform well when used for bagging or side discharging. The notched blade works best in wet conditions and the solid performs best in drier conditions..........it also gives a more manicured cut in these conditions.

    For mulching I prefer the standard mulch kit however there are those that like the new Extreme blade with the "serrated" airfoil.

    Let me know if this isn't clear.

    Thanks

    Terry
