    Really! I never realized that. I had the Gators put on with the mulching kit when I bought my mower. After using it I complained to the dealer about the grass clipping escaping the front of the deck and landing on me. He said I was probably cutting too low for the height of the grass. I have been living with it since then. I will remove them right away and see if there is a difference. Thanks.

    I would assume an oem mulching blade designed for the kit. I use the gator blades anyways, just a lot of blowout when dry and clumping when wet

    OEM wavy mulchers are best with a full mulch kit. They cause less blowout (as mentioned above) by far and do a much better job of chopping the clippings and then forcing them back down into the turf.
