    I've noticed some mulching blades are cut so that the foils move air toward the spindle, or the inside of the deck, and others are angled to move air outward, or away from the spindle.

    Has anyone tried both to see which works better for different conditions?

    I've been using mulchers I got from J-Thomas, they are "outside" flow. I believe Gators are "inside".

    It seems that an inward flow would create better re-circulation of clippings, which would probably be better for leaves, and dry grass, but pretty bad in wet conditions........................

    Whatta y'all think?:confused:

    J Thomas is now offering the inside flow Mulcher's, "High Lift Mulcher's". They look like a duplicate of a Gator Blade.
