    Any high lift blade will do the job as long as they are sharp. Gators don't seem to mulch Bahia any better than a standard high lift. The main thing to keep in mind is the sharper the blade is when you start, the better the results. But be warned...Bahia grass will dull blades quickly so you'll be changing them often. I usually can get 4 average size lawns (12,000 SF) finished before having to change. I can cut 12 to 15 St. Augustine lawns on the same blades before changing.
