    I have an 05 Lazer with the 60" Ultra Cut. I think the blades that came on it were notched high lifts but I may be wrong. What are the advantages of a notched blade? In the parts manual they have one blade (103-6403) listed as Notched and it seems to be a high lift blade. They have another that just says solid (103-6383) is it a high lift all so?

    Tacoma200,

    Here are some general descriptions that I have put together. The Solid and the Notched have the same height air foil. Solid produces just a little less vacuum!

    Notched Air Foil
    These are factory blade and best for most applications
    Max. lift and discharge velocity
    Ideal for heavy thick grasses
    Take full advantage of hp
    Solid Air Foil
    Blades reduce flex when mowing
    Blades don’t tend to bend as easily after impact
    Can help in reducing blow out
    Helpful in cutting Bahia shoot, Dandelions, Foxtail, etc.
    Will reduce discharge velocity
    Low Lift
    Used a lot in sandy areas
    Helps reduce build-up on bottom of deck
    Reduces discharge velocity
    Reduces blow out
    Uses less hp to operate
    Lower noise
    Mulching
    Works well with our mulch kit
    Sharp blades are a must for max performance
    Uses maximum hp for best result
    Forces clipping back into turf
    Blades need to be sharpened more often do to increase cutting of clippings
