    I bought a 27/60 lazer recently with an uv and since this is my first season using it for leaf cleanups I was wondering what the best blade setup would be. Thanks.

    Mr. K,

    I'd probably lean toward the solid air foil blade and would consider the Extreme blade if the leaves are dry to help chew them up a little more before sending them out the deck to the hopper.

    I use Gators with my 52/23 HP with the UV.. If I really want to reduce the leaves.. I will mow with the Gators.. then hang the UV on and vacuum..... To reallly shred 'em.. I've found mowing in a circle to make a "line" or windrow of leaves, then BACKING through the pile really shreds them up... then I'll use the UV to vacuum the lawn.. leaves a real nice clean look, and greatly reduces the amount of leaves....
    Last season I did a job on a 33k sq ft property with 24 trees... I used my WB with mulchers, then vacuumed with the lazer... took about an hour and a half total, and all debris fit in 1/2 of my pickup bed.
