today i bought and installed a set of gators on my eXmark. Ive got to tell you, they are awsome. i have my mower set up to discharge and they work fantastically for it. i was cutting pretty long, thick kuntucky blue grass. They chopped the grass up so well that there was barely anything comming out of the discharge of the mower. They created great lift as well and left a very nice stripe. This allowed me to mow in third and fourth gear instead of second on my lawns and still got a flawless cut!! I am very happy with these blades!!
