    How well will mulch blades work with side discharge?

    Are you sure you are not talking about Gator blades? Well that is what we call them in Canada. They look like a regular blade but have a few teeth pointed upwards. The reason that I ask is because if you use the mulcher you do not have a side discharge.

    the gators work pretty good, unless it is wet & tall. I saw some new ones on ebay that I'd never seen before though. They are shaped like a gator, but have a wavy shape to them like a mulching blade.

    Yes, I was referring to the gator blades. Can you side discharge with them?

    They are meant to be side discharged, but I believe they work well just mulching. Honestly I have noticed no difference between gators and standards side discharging.
