    I just purchased a used 36" Metro (not hydro)...it came with two sets of gator mulching blades...also a bagger.....what should I use all the time ?.....it seems to mulch fine.....wet grass and I didn't have to go over very many clumps....I have yet to try the bagger....also...if I bag...can I use the same gator mulching blades or do I have to buy another type?.....thanks in advance for your reply!

    You can use the same blades to bag. If your getting a clean cut then I wouldn't bag since it takes longer and creates more work for you.

    We mulch about 80% of the time, unless it just doesn't look good then we will bag.......

    Mulching is the way to go for me it save time and is good for the lawn. Wet days are a little tough.
