Doubles with a mulch kit

    Leaf season is right around the corner and I am looking for a blade combination to use with Toro's mulch kit. I have the Z-500 with their mulch kit and I am curious what I might expect if I put doubles on it. If anyone with the new Toro has done it please post your experiences and what combination you used. I have one set of new raptors that I havn't tried yet, I also have two sets of high lifts, atomics, and the "low lifts" that came with the mulch kit. :help:

    Does anyone have experience with doubles on a true mulching deck? Not a deck with the OCDC closed.

    On my Exmark TTHP adding gaters above the OEM mulch blade causes a trail between the blades. No surprise though as for some reason the gaters seem to do this mulching or bagging.
