    I'd like to hear about some 21" blades, specifically mulching blades.

    I have a 21" crapsman that I don't use too often, but when I do the cut is terrible. Since it's used so little I can't justify spending alot on a commercial unit.

    So, I've been looking at different blades. Was wondering if anyone has had any luck significantly improving the cut by switching to a different blade?

    Doesn't snapper make a "ninja" blade that is kinda like a "Y" at each end giving it a doube blade effect? Wonder if it's any good.

    Then sears has a few funky looking mulching blades with weird ends on them.

    Anyone have any input? Thanks.

    Ninja's are the best mulching blades, but can be a bear to sharpen the secondary edges. Doubles on a 21" ? Haven't tried it yet. Do you have to fabricate a special holder to keep the "X" formation?
  4. I have the best results with doubles and side discharge, type of blade doesnt seem to make a lot of difference, except 2 high lift mulch blades together didn't work well .
