    High lift.
  5. It comes out more like muck than mulch.

    My prefrence is high lifts with Gators doubled up on top.

    Once I had a Bunton 36" WB mulching mower. I cut the side out of the deck with a sawzall. It mowed much better after that.:D

    If your using a MULCHING deck, I'd prefer MULCHING blades.

    If your simply cutting, ..... High Lift, fully sharpened.

    Since I have never been successful at any type of mulching (other than leaves) I prefer to simply let it fly with high lifts.

    Doubles the original blades on bottom and gators on top. Are the originals what everyone is calling high lifts?:confused:

    Double hi lifts in the spring, single hi lift in the summer and double gators for the leaves---what a grinding experience!!!!
