i have a 36'' mini z and im running the production blades which are low lift. im cutting mostly st augustine and some bahia. on st augustine the blades are fine but on bahia its leaving stringers everywhere. my other mower which is a wb of a different brand uses high lift blades and it leaves very few stringers. according to the reference chart there is no high lift option is there another blade that would give me more lift, such as the mulching blades. not sure what they look like. i dont like gators this time of year as they tend to pack the deck full of grass more when its wet. oh by the way im side discharging.
