I cut several properties every other week or, 2 times monthly with no bagging. (Repo Homes)The blades I always have used on my Gravely Z 252 were standard high lift blades. I recently installed Gator high lift blade's by Stens. I am not sure how many brands are out there. With the wet spring we had this year I just wanted to try them. My regular blades while always sharp just seemed to struggle through the tick grass. The decked clogged with build up and I would have to turn the PTO off and then on to clean the deck out some. This being done very often. I installed the new blades last night to do an initial cut on a new property. This being a small lot in a close neighborhood I decided to bag. The blades were amazing and had much more lift. The grass packed in to my accelerator very tight. I had a dust cloud around me due to the blades lifting and creating much wind. This evening I did 2 properties that are 2 times monthly (repos). These 2 I never bag but, in the past I would have to go over some of them 2 times due to poor cuts and leaving strips in thick area's. I also had a lot of thick grass clippings with the other blades. Tonight when cutting the clippings were much more cut up, expelled from the shoot much further and spread out more. I also noticed a much better cut over all and no more going over it again saving time and money. This was my first experience with this type of blade. Tomorrow I will be doing jobs I do weekly and several more that are every other week. I expect the same good results. I am very happy with this type of blade. My only regret so far is having not getting a set of these several years ago. I also bought another set of regular blades when I bought these gator blades. Unless something changes I can't ever see me going back to regular high lift blades. I welcome comments good and bad on this style blades and any tips to go along with.
