    I just ordered some Atomic Mulching blades for my Toro 21" Proline I was wondering if anyone has tried them. Any comments would be appreciated.

    21" Atomics are Garbage...The serrated edges have almost Zero Lift...Gators are Better but unless you're mulching leaves stick w/the Stock Blades...

    Zero Lift Atomics on the Right...Gators on Left !

    I agree.

    I'm not a huge fan of atomics either, no lift at the end of the blade causes streaks.

    I run them on my Z's with no problem. Depends on what you are cutting. Lift is not an issued with Bermuda that is kept below 2".

    I guess that is bad news. I bought it because curiousity got the best of me and they were like 5 dollars cheaper then the original blade. I assume the dont bag well right?

    I concur with other comments about bad performance. They didn't do a good finish cut, added nothing to bagging performance, added nothing to mulching capability.

    My blade is in the shop corner someplace!
