Mulching blades or regular blades?

    I'm just wondering what you guys use for your residential lawns. I've been using mulching blades, mainly just to save some time from cleaning up the clippings. Do regular blades give a better cut?

    Just interested in what you guys are using and which gives a better quality cut.

    you might try the G5 blade from oregon, they are a high lift gator with oregon quality. I have seen a lot of commercial cutters switching to them. when they order from my online store as well as almost all of them that come into my shop have changed over.

    What I use depends on the time of year and conditions. In general I run Gators in the fall and early spring and high lifts the rest of the time. Sometimes I will run low lifts if we get a dry spell so I don't kick up so much dust.
