    for those experimenting for best leaf mulch set up . try gator on top and mulcher on bottom. icant imagine any thing doing a cleaner more complete job . i run 20 kohler 52 cut lazer.
    u may have to slow dn a tad as this set up glues u to the ground.
    dont run over meter covers etc or there toast. hope it works as well for others . i run this w discharge plate on or off .later now

    Do you mean the eXmark mulching blade? If so, I may try that tomorrow.

    After several attempts I found a great combo for my 52 Great Dane. Gators on the bottom and high lift 48" blades on top. Good lift, but not so much blow out. I also bolted an Exmark mulch plate on the cover the discharge side.
    I have not found any better set up than the micro mulch system on the 60" Lazer.
    If all else fails, or I get tired of going around in circles chasing leaves, I can use my latest purchase.....a 95 WalkerGHS 20 hp 48 " (the machine only had 156 hours) and came with a dethatcher.
