    I just purchased a Fastrak 18hp with a 44" deck. I went with the mulch kit to prevent discharging grass into my landscape beds.

    My questions are these:

    I want the best possible cut, as I am used to that of my old Honda push mower. What blades (with the mulch kit) will give my lawn the best manicured appearance?

    Should I consider a bagger? Would a bagger give better results? If yes, what blades would be best with a bagger?

    I have 1/2 acre of various blends of fescue, that I have been mowing twice weekly due to the large amounts of rain. I always cut once per week at a minimum.

    The Gator blades work best with our mulch kits.
    Bagging is a option also......if you have somewhere to put it.
    There are a few aftermarket side catchers available.
    And we hope to have a rear bagger available in the fall.
