I have a 36" Exmark Metro Belt Drive, and until this year, I've been just double-cutting yards if a lot of grass clippings are left on top of the lawn. But now I have more customers and I'm considering getting gator mulching blades to help reduce some of my double-cutting. Also, when I double cut yards, they usually aren't super long, they're just thick lawns with enough debris on top to make them look somewhat bad. So, I had a few questions. 1. Should I purchase the Gator brand or are there alternative less expensive brands that can side discharge and leave a good cut? 2. With the Exmark Metro, will I have to cut very slowly? Currently I cut in 4th gear, so would that be too fast? 3. I hear any mulching blades are terrible in the rain. I have a belt drive so I don't cut much in the rain anyways. But how do the gators fair with wet grass? 4. Is there any difference between the high lift and standard mulching blades, besides the fact that the high lifts have more suction and shoot grass further? 5. Will the gator blades shoot grass as far as my current standard Exmark high lift blades? Thanks for responses in advance. I know some of this is available through the search feature, but I'm really looking for an answer from people who have had experience with mulching blades and 36" mowers. Again, I really appreciate your responses.
