    Which type of blades are u using? I have been using the regular cutting blades, then recently switched to hi-lift for the fall....any other recommendations?

    Depends on what you need or want the machine to do...
    If you are side discharging during the season, then doubles - regular straight on bottom/Gator on top.
    Catching - regular straight blades during the season, high lifts in fall for leaves.
    Mulching (with Wright's baffle kit) - either regular straights, high lift Gators or the Exmark Excaliber blades which are pretty much the same if the have the notched airfoils. I would not use doubles or high lifts with the kit - too much blow out.

    How do the doubles work?

    Well lets put it this way, I do not pick up anything from May thru till probably the second or third week in Oct. If there is any clumps or areras that don't look passable in appearance, I either make another pass with the mower or as I am blowing, I blow that area out real quick to disperse anything that is laying on top.

    i sold a few standers to the city here, they've tried a few different types and configurations, but they are sold on "RazorBacks" they are mulching blades like gators, but seem to keep an edge a lot longer.

    they screwed a piece of expanded metal over the discharge, and when these things mulch leaves and thick grass they leave no trace.
