    I keep reading about blades, but it still seems unclear as to when to use which blade. I really do not wish to run a mulching kit on my Fastrak 20/52. Does that rule out the Gator blades?

    If I'm mowing taller stuff or weeds, what would be the blade of choice??

    You can use Gators with out the mulch kit, that is not a problem at all, it will cut the clippings up much smaller.
    As far as which blades to use...... That is a regional question, different parts of the country and types of grasses and of course length and moisture content will all factor in when making these blade decisions.
    Your best bet is to talk to your dealer and see what he recommends for your application.
