    I am running a 48'' LazerZ CT with stock blades and an UtraVac system. I really have a hard time getting through just a little bit of a yard before the bags are full and was wondering whether or not to pick up some mulch blades or not? Will this slow blade speed down or help at all? Pros & Con? Thanks.

    Without a doubt, bet a set of mulching blades. Exmark might even make a specific blade for this. Someone might chime in on that. And try chopping up the leaves before bagging. Huge time savings.
    Also, I will often cut in circles and then back up over the row and it really shreds them then.

    Gator baldes work wonders in leaves. Also consider tossing off the blower and running over the bad areas once and chopping them up before sucking them up with the vac. The smaller the peices the more u can get in there!
