    yes. in fact I am using them right now. but.......based upon other reports here, I am convinced they perform differently on different machines.

    in my case, I am running them because it is the "thing to do" in this time of year rather than them providing sooper dooper results.

    in otherwords.......IMHO......for their cost they are probably worth it. good luck.

    give them a try keegan. Only you will be able to find out whether they are worth it. I feel that YES they are worth it especially during the fall

    I used them in the spring and summer on my Exmark and saw no difference.

    However, i should see a difference with the leaves in the fall. Have not used them yet, but i will let you know as soon as i do.

    They're great for mulching up leaves in the fall, but I don't think they perform any better than standard high lifts on grass.

    My experience was they were far superior on grass as well. Shredded the clippings MUCH finer.

    I used them on a Grasshopper and a Bob-Cat w/b.
