    Work great for me when the grass is dry or during leaf season. When the grass growing fast they dont seem to cut as well.

    yeah they don't cut very well in thick grass i heard it was because of air flow or something like that

    Anyone use gator blades without a mulching kit? I usually side discharge and was thinking the gator blades would still mulch a lil more than stock blades before the clippings get discharged...

    They disperse the clippings not as far as standard blades will and smaller.
