    I was wondering what blades do you guys use to help with your fall leaf cleanups? I have an exmark Metro 36" and stock blades. I need something that will chop up the leaves but still allow me to bag. Unfortunatly I dont have a truck loader yet :cry:

    Thanks,
    Josh

    we run gators year round , great for leaf work , also block the discharge an watch that thing turn into a leaf monster. If ya really get ballsy run double blades. Have fun George

    badboy, I know I love them, I just put a new set on over the weekend, I try to keep 3 sets of blades on hand so I can swap them and then sharpen them when I have time.

    Gators are super great on leafs it turns them to dust :)

    Do you guys who use the Gators have your mower set up for mulching or side discharge?
