What blades to use with Quick Chute?

I was wondering what blades are the best to run on my 52" Turboforce deck with my quick chute? I have the highlifts that come on it. Maybe something that will mulch and/or side discharge.

I don't have a Quick Chute, but I run Gators when I mulch or side disharge. I would think these would do better than Hi-Lifts because less chance of leaving a row of clippings.

Go to a Husqvarna or Yazoo/Kees dealer and get a set of their OEM wavy mulchers. The Turbo Force does use regular length blades with 5/8" center hole right?

I know these fit the eXmarks and they are a better blade made by some other blade MFG. They have FMC stamped on them if you happen to know "who" that is.

If you have to order them, allow 2 weeks for arrival... LOL.
Husqvarna-Yazoo sucks... LOL.

Don't do the OEM eXmark blades... they suck in my opinion.
Not enough lift and they flex too easily under load.




I don't like gators for mulching with a closed deck.
They cause too much blowout and suspend too many clippings up in the deck.
As a result, the deck loads up and eats a lot of power...
And when you stop to turn, the deck will dump clippings.
