    Bought a grassgobbler for my toro 44 wb since the grass was growing so fast here i had to take of the mulch kit and bag it. the gobbler works great, alot of the fine grass blows out the small holes and it doesn't fill to quick. the lawns look great. anyone else using the gobbler? what blades do you use with them?

    I have 2 gobblers. They work good, but are a little heavy to lift, especially when full. I use gators all the time - no matter what. I don't bag much anymore - too much time, effort and trouble to dispose of. If mulching isn't working, just side discharge.

    Mr. Foley,

    I like to use my Gobbler during the Spring. It works nicely to pick up the remnants of left over leaves from last Fall. It is a good tool and much more affordable than the trac vacs.

    I use the high lift blades with the can.

    I have a Gobbler XL. Good solid construction, with a high volume rating...for a side attached bagging unit anyways. I like it, but don't use it much.

    Also use a Gobbler, mainly in spring and fall. Use the stock blades.
