    12yo 14hp Kawi 52" Toro Wb.

    What Would Be My Best Option High Or Low Lift Blades Gater Mulch Blades, I Always Side Discharge When I Mow.

    Could I Hook Up A Striper Kit On This Mower?

    I have the same mower with 18koh. using oem low lift now. In fall

    sometimes use high lift to pick up grass. For gators I use Oem atomics.

    my leaf pick up is a Walker ghs. Got to experiment. I like low lifts for wet

    spring grass. Ed

    how can you tell the differnce between low lift, high lift and mulch blades?

    i might have high lifts on right now.

    does your unit stripe good? im trying to get a rolling striper hooked up to the back of the unit.

    have you gave this any thought?

    OEM low lift-the lifty is 2" longer than the cutting edge. On hilift the lift or

    sail is shorter than cutting edge. You can get owners manual from Toro

    on line. Yours looks like an 87 or 88. I had an 87 44" with the same J bolt

    for deck tension springs. If you squeeze the deck drive belt the deck should move about 1-1.5". Ed

    Why must you post multiple threads about the same crap?
    I gave advice in the other thread about this. Good advice too, if I do say so myself.

    T he meg mo blades will do a very fine job on your mower. A 5" wide piece of belting will make a good striper.
