    I have a set of gator blades on my 36" walk-behind bobcat . it seems in regular or tall grass they cut great, but they tend to skip a little when cutting clover.I have one customer that has a lot of clover,they do not care that it skips a little,but i do. does anyone else have problem with their gators or, am i the only one.

    Clover bends over very easily which is why your mower will miss some even with razor sharp blades. This year has been very good for clover, the best since 1995. Either put double blades on, double cut it or do like the homeowner said and don't worry about it if it's not a mess.

    switch those gators to standard high lifts and see what happens. they seemed to do better for me.

  8. Instead of using name brands you should use the generic name of the actual chemical actually that provides the control.

    The ingredient in both momentum and confront that controls white and pink clover is Diacamba.
