In my opinion, and that of other users, the yBravo 25 is a STRONG performer in damp and wet grass...with the Stock Factory blade. That is why I bought the mower last Spring after a short demo in wet grass. With that said I have never been one to accept the status quo and Im currently looking for other blades to improve on its already solid performance in bagging and mulching. I just have one Major Caveat that needs to be understood. #1 USE YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE in this venture. Using a blade other than that authorized by the manufacturer may void your warranty etc. And I Strongly Recommend that if you use ANY other blade than that recommended or supplied by yBravo that you SHOULD USE the longest possible possible MATCHING GRADE HIGH GRADE spindle bolt that will thread into the spindle. MAKE SURE it is also correctly torqued.
