    I just bought my toro 36 proline with floating deck and 15hp kohler. I haven't mowed any yards yet and I was trying to figure out what blades are the best for the money. I have read that the mulch kit on the toro isnt the best so I was going to try to bag and use the side discharge depending on what the customer wants. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

    The best ones I have had luck with have been GATOR BLADES. They run about $13.00 each but, you can go to http://j-thomas.com/ and get a pretty good deal there.
