    I am guessing that you need some high lifts.

    No, a high lift is the exact opposite of the mulching blade -
    A standard blade has standard lift. A mulching blade has LO lift and a HI lift blade has even more lift than the standard.

    Take a look at Gator blades for mulching. They cut clippings into small pieces so you don't have so many "clumps" to deal with. Do yourself a favor and have more than one spare set. Get them sharpened by your dealer frequently. Guys on here will tell you as often as every 10 hours of cutting; I'm having mine done every 40 hours, sooner if I find nicks or burs.
