    I have a snapper rer and am wanting to mulch. I have heard a lot about both the gator blade and the ninja blade. Can anyone help me out with which one is better and why. By the way its a 28" and I have bermuda grass if that makes a difference. Thanks.

    I tried both the ninja blade and the gator blade and it seems that the gator blade gives a better cut. With the ninja blade I had to set the speed to 1 and still had to go over some areas twice. With the gator blade I was able to set speed at 3 and not have to recut.
    I'm sold on the gator blade.
