    Hey guys/gals just thought I'd share. Put on an Atomic blade Thursday and have been cutting everyday with it. It came at a good time as I was behind from the rain grass was about 4-5" and I cut at 2.5 with no clumping at all. Was totally impressed. At $ 14.80 each it was well worth not having to double cut. If you own a Toro try them out. Mowman

    I think you can get them for 21&quot; 44&quot; & 52&quot; cutter decks. To be sure just check with your Toro dealer. They are a HOT item right now, I had to wait almost 3 weeks for mine. Well good luck with them. I think you will be impressed as I was. Mowman

    The Atomic blades are the Gator blades. nothing more. they are a nice blade, but,I have used them in the past and as some of you have said, I did not think they lifted the air flow enough, therfore the cut was not as nice, and it does not shoot the clippings out as far, I have tried mulching with them with limited success, do not cut if grass is wet, or even damp from morning watering system. So now I have about 5 sets sitting on a shelf this year. I have returned all units to a standard blade, no gators, mulching, just good old Sharp (ouch!) blades. Atomic bought gator, gator no longer exists.
     
  9. These &quot;atomic&quot; blades are notihing more than<br>plain gator mulching blades. The are about<br>$9 bucks each.<p>They work great on 44-52-62&quot; toros.
