    I am picking up my first ZTR tomorrow. It is a used 2004 Gravely 34z with 170 hours. It will be for my personal residential use and hopefully a few yards on the side for my son.

    I am trying to find out the best mulching blade to install and if I need a Kit or just the blades. I searched the forum and found little other than a post that stated the new mulching blades suck but the old ones were good.

    Also do I even need to consider mulching. Mower is coming with a set of high lift blades and a set of new replacements.

    First post so I'll give some bio:

    Site = 1 Acre of common Bremuda
    Terrain = Flat
    Turf density = fair with spring weeds everywhere
    Irrigation = none
    Goals = Field of dreams!
    Mowing frequency = twice a week
    Location = Atlanta GA
    Sun = Full

    I intend for my son to pick up a few neighborhood jobs. Dad gets 20% of the take for maintenance and equipment costs.
