Does anybody use an OCDC on their 7 Iron II deck for mulching leaves? If so, what blade setup are you using? I run an Exmark with the chute blocked for making rough leaf mulching passes. But, I learned that my standard lift, notched air foil blades create too much blowout. Also, my hi-lift Gators have more blowout than I would like. The best blade is a regular Gator. No, the result does not leave the debris evenly spread, but that can be solved with a wheeled blower, or with a cross pass with the mower, chute blocker removed. I have a JD 717A, and tried a chute blocker. The only blades I have are the OEM blades. They do a great job on turf, but create far, far too much blowout for a simple chute blocker scheme. Which leads me to my question: What blades are the best choice for rough leaf mulching, with a simple chute blocker scheme? I ended up using my 717A very little over the leaf season because I couldn't mulch leaves with it. I still had properties for discharge mowing, so I did not want to mount a mulch kit. An answer in another thread revealed that to mount/dismount the mulch kit is a large job. Therefore, an on/off procedure is out of the question. I posted this in another thread a few weeks ago and received no responses. Perhaps nobody is using a simple chute blocker setup on the 7 Iron II deck.
