    What would expect if I were to replace my standard issue lawn mower blades with gator blades? I have a hustler 52/25 and Toro proline. Almost all of my properties are bagged. What difference would I see if any??

    Thanks
    Frank

    Smaller clippings in your bag would be about it.

    smaler clippings, more will be able to fit in your bag. and the same quality of a cut

    It's worth it if you're tight on space. Like mentioned, you can pack more grass in the bag which also means less time wasted emptying it.

    I'd much rather bag more and stop less.

    I've noticed that gator cut quality isn't as good as my standard lift or muching blades.

    true story, the gators have less lift = worse cut quality. At least on my Z. I use them in the fall only.

    the people i have talked to about this issue have said that the gator blades work great for mulching but are nat as good for bagging
