    Which blades does Hustler recommend for a 37" walkbehind with the mulching kit? My salesman originally told me that I would need Gator mulching blades, but then he said that someone at Hustler said they would not perform well with the mulching kit and that I should use the standard blade with the mulching kit? That doesn't sound right to me. Please give me a Hustler part number for the blade you recommend if there is one.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    It depends on the grass and how thick, tall and wet it may or may not be.
    I would start with Gator Blades, and I would be using the anti blowout kit, with any mulch kit and catching set-up

    So can you use the standard blades? And What is the anti blowout kit? I was told I needed a mulch kit (344929). I received it but there where no mulching blades included. Not sure what else I need.

    We have since started recommending our "wavy" style mulch blades, in our testing the past couple of seasons we have found them to work best.
    Mulching blades are not supplied in all of our mulch kits.
    The kit that would have them in it for your mower is part # 352435
