    No problem at all, I always use a double blade set up with gators(mulching) on top and reg on bottom. It works well with bagging because it cuts the grass/leaves finer, allowing for fewer dumps.

    Why not just mulch and no bag. I stay as far away from bagging as possible!

    Syzer, for spring cleanup on one of the properties I have it is easier if I don't have to change blades. I mulch year round though.

    Thats what we do - throw on them bags and have at it!!

    I dont know what type of blades you are using but we use Gators during the Spring Clean-Ups and then go back to high-lift blades until the late fall.

    Hope this helps.
