Allready getting complaints. I need to mulch with this mower until my ztr arrives. My wb is a toro proline belt drive 52 inch. Will doulbes fix my problem? or do I need to focus on mulching (read, focus on where to buy a mulch kit for this model mower?)
Thanks.

Try doubles- use a regular lift blade with a gator or reverse gator style blade on top. It may not be the solution but I don't know your conditions. Still, it is cheaper than a mulch kit and more versatile. Mulching is great but I don't think it's right for me, maybe it is for you. Still, I'd try doubles first and see what that does for you.

I had to double cut some last week with the same mower, was a lil too much growth to cut off and left kinda a mess. After the 2nd time it was gone though

If you have the SFS deck there isnt much you can do. I have the 36" and run doubles, which seem to help some. Gator over regular lift.

Thanks all. Will doubles only hi lift work?

I have a Toro 44" and a 37" with mulch kits on each. I run gator blades (1 set). I love them. I had a mulch kit added to our 52" Hustler ZTR this year. No muss, no fuss.
