I've got Gators for my 36 Ferris. I haven't put them on yet, to try them, but I was wondering if I should also get a chute blocker. I want to chop up leafs to make my leaf cleanups easier. Will the Gators chop up the leafs really well with the discharge open? Will they chop up leafs better with the discharge blocked? I'll be dealing primarily with heavy deposits of maple leafs.
