    Whats the PN for the highest lift knotched foils?

    Whats the PN for the highest lift Excalibers?

    Whats the best blade to run for thin, or "weedy" grass?

    Currently there are only 4 blade choices, all are either Excalibur or will be as soon as the dealer and distributor stock is retailed. For the conditions your describing I would recommend the solid air foil blade unless it is also extremely dusty and then I would recommend the low lift blade. The following information may help as well. I've also put the p/n in for your 60" Lazer Z

    Notched Air Foil - p/n 103-2530
    These are factory blade and best for most applications
    Max. lift and discharge velocity
    Ideal for heavy thick grasses
    Takes full advantage of hp

    Solid Air Foil - p/n 103-1580
    Blades reduce flex when mowing
    Blades don't tend to bend as easily after impact
    Can help in reducing blow out
    Helpful in cutting Bahia shoot, Dandelions, Foxtail, etc.
    Will reduce discharge velocity

    Low Lift - p/n 103-2510
    Used a lot in sandy areas
    Helps reduce build-up on bottom of deck
    Reduces discharge velocity
    Reduces blow out
    Uses less hp to operate
    Lower noise

    Mulching - p/n 103-0301
    Works well with our mulch kit
    Uses maximum hp for best results
    Forces clipping back into turf
    Blades need to be sharpened more often do to increase cutting of clippings

    Let me know if we can be of any further assistance.

    Thanks, Terry.

    I'll try some different combinations. :)
