    And yes i did a search but it was vague, I have a 48 inch Bobcat walk behind, i dont plan on bagging but may do one or two residentials, what type of blade should i use? Regular blade or mulching?

    standard lift= plain jane blade gets it done sometimes good sometimes bad
    high lift= more lift on the grass usually a cleaner cut sometimes leaves long strands of grass when discharged
    mulching blade= less lift but finer pieces of grass discharged
    mulching kit= less pieces of grass than any choice easy to get around flower beds but clumps in thick and wet grasses also puts more strain on the mower

    maybe that will help you out
