    what size deck are you using? i Have a turf tiger with the 61'' and run high lifts with no propblems even though im told it slows the rpm down. And i have a 52'' walkbehind with high lifts that chops the leaves up too. Both are velocity decks.
    You might try a high lift mulching blade.

    I have the 52" deck. When you go to buy the blades do you ask for high lift blades or high lift mulching blades like the gator blades everyones talking about?
