    What is the optimum blade setup for a FasTrak 52" for mulching grass and/or leaves. Is it the blades installed from the factory? Should I install all mulching blades? Or is it a combination of blades? Thanks in advance.

    The wavy mulching blades or Gators would be your best choices.

    What are wavy mulching blades and who makes them?

    Also, under "Blade Reference" which is the first topic under this forum, there is mention of a 'hi-lift' blade for the FasTrak. In order to obtain best results for grass/leave mulching, I would think a combination of gator and hi-lift blades.

    We offer them, they are available from your dealer.
    The part # you need is 794198.
    We have tested with the wavy mulching blade for a few seasons, and we are very happy with the results.
