    Could I do side discharge or bagging with Gator mulching blades?

    Absolutely. They are IMO the best blades out there. Almost no clippings visible when using them on regular cut customers and its not really wet.

    I have never used them but how do the gators bag well if they send the clippings/leaves back to the center of the deck. However I have seen blades that have the fins facing outward to push the clippings out while mulching with the fins, these are not gators but an off brand mulching blade. n1alx, I would ask this question on the oregon forum.

    we use gator blades on all of out mowers and they work like a charm. a buddy of mine introduced them to me and i think they're awesome. we sharpen our blades at least once a week. they're not that expensive and i think they're the best blades on the market.

    Been using Gators on and off since '97. The only time I don't use them is in heavy grass/weeds. They bag and discharge very well. They will reduce grass clippings dramatically if you bag all of the time. Although you are reducing clippings in the bag you cannot tell the difference on the lawn. If you like to mulch leaves Gators are tops. They absolutely devastate leaves.
