    On behalf of Lawnsite, I would like to give you a warm welcome.

    This is an excellent site, you will find it very valuable.

    I will let others answer your question, as I dont run an Exmark Z. However the god of exmark,. JOHN GAMBA should be able to help..

    Best of Luck in the Future Justin!!!

    welcome to the site...the one thing that I have learned from this site is, don't take any people say personal. We all are on ego trips and we don't know when the plane will be landing

    Welcome Justin,
    I'm running doubles with oem mulchers and oem high lifts right now.Just checking another combo out right now,but I'm not impressed with it.Ran double high lifts and it took too much power,Ran high lifts with gators and I'm not impressed with those either.Running on a 52" 23 horse HP also.Still looking for the right combo for this particular mower.They do run better on the 60" lazer with the deeper deck.Also a 23 horse.

    Welcome !!!!!

    I have tried many combos on my LHP 23/52...... depends on what you're cutting, what will work best....... "Nice" lawns, but heavy growth, I find double High Lifts work best due to increased discharge volume/velocity.......
    (do you have an anti-blowout baffle? If not, get one)
    On lawns with weed/crabgrass growth, I Like the gators over high lifts.....

    after last weeks storm, I wanted something to mulch up some of the leaves that were down, so I tried SINGLE gators on the trim side, and center, with an Excalibur hi-lift on the discharge.... worked fairly well, and still discharged pretty good!!

    John Gamba likes eXmark????? I never really noticed that.:D
