    I want to mulch pretty much all if not all of this comming year.

    First off, can i run doubles on my eXmark? The metro 48/15 kawi? Just want to make sure.

    Which of these would be the best combo:

    1)Grass Hawgs with high lifts in the spring and then Magnum Gators with high lifts in the summer and fall.

    2)Grass Hawgs with high lifts all year round

    3)Magnum Gators with High Lifts all year long

    4)Grass Hawgs with Magnum Gators

    5)any better combo i missed??

    Thanks guys!

    I think doubles with a mulch kit suck.

    Any reccomendations then? And do they suck because of too much blowout? Thanks

    I'm new to the business but can someone explain what doubles are?

    Yup, too much blowout and air disturbance.

    Putting 2 blades in a + pattern on each spindle instead of a single blade.

    Any suggestions instead of doubles then? Single grass hawgs or single magnum gators??

    Hey

    Try stock high lifts and just keep them razor sharp.

    Thats what I run on my Toro, works on thick wet grass with almost no clumping.
