    They have worked very well for me. No complaints.

    Like them for leaves on some mowers and plain out hate them on others.

    Good Luck

    I run the Gators on my Toro Proline 21". I've been pleased with their performance...

    I don't know about the gators yet, I use a 2" spacer (actually 3 small spacers per spindle) above the blade which is a reg mulching blade. It has a raised center and I swear it's hard to beat.
    I also ordered 3 sets the other day and have to p/u tomarrow. One set of BrushHogs which are serated and high lift with a blade on each side; One set of High lift .240; One set of the Center rise high-lift in the .240. I think the Hogs are .250 thick/2.5 wide/21" long. Thats a darn monster set of blades. My question is running doubles and which 2? Hustler 27/60 Super payup

    Love them for doing leaves. Bought a bunch of them on eBay around $8-9 bucks each.

    We use the hi lift mulching blades from J-Thomas. We use these blades year around on our 2 Scag Tiger Cubs, they cut grass great and mulch leaves in the fall with our mulching kit.

    They paid off big this fall for me. I don't normally do fall clean-ups but I did 4 and made a little over a grand and never picked up a single leaf. Last year when i was using regular blades, I would have never attempted this so the 10 bucks or so that i paid, it was well worth it. Call around, youmight just be able to get them locally and save on shipping costs.
