    Scag seems to have some pretty impressive mulch blades out now, I called to get a price on the, i'm looking at $90 to get a set for my 36 and for my 48, VERY EXPENSIVE, so before I order them, do any of you guys have any imput on these blades? I am trying to find a blade that is possibly lighter than the gators so I won't have so much strain on my mower when running double blades. Any input would be appriciated, check the new blades out at http://www.scag.com and go to "what's new"

    Looks like a cross between the "Ninja" mulchers offered by snapper and the "Gator" blades.

    I would almost recommend that before you spend $90 on these blades that you try the double blades of Chicago native Eric ELM and see how they work with your equipment first.

    Just my .02

    I was talking to Jeff about these blades and I was wondering if they can be used on a Exmark?? Anyone know?

    They look like the new mulching blades made by Stens called the Raptor.

    Stens makes mulchers for Scag. I've used the Gators and the Stens side by side and found that the Gators did a little bit better job mulchin' but the Stens had a little more lift and I could use the bagger if I needed to. The Stens would bag when the Gaters would not. BTW tommorrow I'm looking at my Gravely Pro-150 to see what it would take to do double blades. It sounds great.
