What type of blades are better mulching or stock blades.
i use gator mulching blades.
we use gators as well
I havn't been able to use mulching blades on northern grasses. It kind of balls up.
Except I do use gators on top with a double blade set up.
I have a set of gators that I use just for mulching leaves.
If you have a side discharge mower with a lot of discharge velocity the gators might work for you. You'll have to watch where the clippings go. The gators kind of squeeze the sap out of the grass so it'll stain houses easily.
i only run mulching blades in the fall they just dunt give a very good cut this time of year
Mulching blades dont work for me this time of year, they just make a big 'ole mess of turds all over the lawn. Later in the year they work great once the grass slows down and dries a little bit.
Around here the lawns are mostly Kentucky 31 tall fescue.
Do the high lift gator blades work well using a Tiger cub 61" velocity deck during the rainy season?
thinking about trying them
I use Toro mowers and I have found that the stock mulching blades are better than Toro's Atomic Blades, which leave a lot of stringers. Last year it was so dry I mulched all year but this year I am discharging until later this summer. Regular blades do not usually mulch well, so I switch out the blades depending on the need.
are the fusion blades worth the price on standard hgh lift and/or gators?
well i have a lesco commerical walkbehind and i live in the north east (PA). So which set of blades would leave a nicer cut.
