    I own a 20017 22" Toro Recycler lawnmower. I saw some 22" gator blades. The notches to mince the grass in the back of the blade look more daggered and are lifted higher than the Toro blade. Would the gator blade mulch much better than the atomic blade on the 22" Recycler?

    I dunno about those but I have the Viper sold at Home Depot and Im not impressed. They too have a much more aggressive looking blade. They say on the package "bags 50% more." Well I bought one cuz it looked cool. I dont bag...mulch only so that may be the problem.

    The only way I can think of to find out is to...find out. Cut some grass onto a sidewalk using each blade and compare the resulting chop. If you opt to try that, let us know, would you? I'm curious myself 'cause I have a Toro Recycler with the 22" deck and have seen the blades you're talking about.
