    Hi lifts should give you the best cut out there. This is due to the increased vacuum.

    I prefer to use the standard Hi-Lift blade vs. the Gators or others because with the longer clippings I find they lay on top of the turf better and give us a neater appearance with less clumping under wetter conditions.

    I have not tried your brand but Im sure you have found similar results.

    Turfs Up!!!
