    All of our gator blades are the G6 type... but we dont run anything but extreme hilifts in the spring. They work great as long as its dry. Early morning dew will slow you down. They do work much better compared to the older lower lift gators though. Hope this helps.

    When you say they slow you down how much more than regular blades. I have just regular blades on my mowers; hustlerz and ferris IS3100. I cut in mostly wet grass but am interested in cleaner discharge. Thankyou.

    Hi lift blades we will run full stick most of the time when the gators are on and the grass is wet to damp run about half stick or less to reduce clumps until things dry up. This time of year we actually change blades at lunch time because the morning dew is like rain here hilifts in am and gators in pm. We run all grasshopper, the hustlers in the area really struggle in wet conditions but the ferris' seem to do really well

    Thank you JP1119 I might buy some to see how they do down here. It rains sometimes for 7-10 days at a time. So I need something that can deal with very wet grass, but want to try the gators if they dissintigrate grass as people say. I live in central america and grass grows 1.5 feet a week sometimes cause of our rainfall and warm climate. People here cant pay for more than biweekly cuts so my mowers take a beating. Thankyou for the info.
