    With fall around the corner, I want to mulch as many leaves as possible. What do you guys suggest?

    We run mulch kits with gator blades. What kind of mower do you have?

    I am sure that Exmark and Hustler make mulch kits, I would check with your local dealer. We have had the best luck mulching leaves on our accounts about every 7 to 10 days, so they don't get too thick.

    We use a mulching kit on a Hustler Super Z and is great for leaves.

    I'm new at this so I have a couple stupid questions. What does double gators mean? Are you installing 2 blades together? or are you double cutting?. Doesn't a mulching kit have baffles that close off the other 2 blades on a 48" deck?. So, when you don't mulch you remove the baffles, open the side and change the gators. And, If you mulch you close the side and re-install baffles and but the gators back on. I have an TT HP 48 and I'm interested in getting the mulch kit with gators. Any advise and words of wisdom please. Again, I know stupid questions. But, I got to learn. Thanks in advance.
