    No combs just the MEG MO blades and you can use all year.

    I was hoping to see a little more feedback. What do users think of the Meg Mo? How about the magnums? I'm new to lawnsite, and I find all the information to be very useful.

    Thanks for the education,

    Actually, me too. There "has" to be differences in the amount of horsepower needed to run difference combos. Also, is the idea of mulching to drive the clippings back into the ground or what???
    Do we want highlift, lowlift or does it not matter the amount of lift but rather something more like the gators with a grinding action in the sail. Come all you know it alls, help me out.....
    Thanks,
    Pete

    Are we talking to just mow, or do leaf cleanup too?

    Rod,
    Actually both.........However the priority will be mowing, and leaf cleanup will be done more with a blower...........
    Thanks,

    I've had very good results with a high lift on the bottom and a gator type on top for just mowing. Leaf cleanup and mulching for vac purposes I run double Gators.

    Hope that helps...

    Ron,

    That's sound very logical.
    Thanks,

    RODFATHER - What are double gators? I use gator blades myself but never have heard of double gators.
