    All right i take back eveything bad i ever said about megmos. :blush: Today i decided to swap my stock blades for the megmos which have been sitting all season. I used them last year for leaves and when i used them in the spring they just didnt seem to be working that good. Well today changed my opinion totally. i had one lawn that was very long 4-5", well they pulverized they grass into nothing. It seemed as though they work better with out the grass gobbler though. another great thing is they create so much suction for wet leaves. All i can say is i take back anything bad i ever said :drinkup: :cool2:

    I got a set of Meg Mo blades about a month ago. There are certain situations that regular blades would be better, but for the most part Meg Mo blades do just as advertised. I'm very happy with them. They destroy leaves and humiliate grass clippings.

    When mowing some big properties with Dallisgrass, the Dallisgrass would always win. But the Meg Mo blades seem to be the only blades that will handle it.

    I mulched up a leaf job the other day. 1 acre with about 40 trees. After I finished chopping them it looked like times when I had picked them up.

    They do take some horsepower. They drop my rpm's in grass down 300-400 rpm but even then they cut twice as good as regular blades at full rpm.
