    Were running Exmark notched high lifts, they leave a nicer cut than the fusions, To me the fusions are a medium lift blade.Ive herd some guys are running dixies

    On 60" deck try 3" Dixie blade and see what you think. I like Rotary brand 6441.

    I stand corrected. Extremely dry, the Exmark blade is working better. The 3" blade has too much blowout. 3" works good in the heavy green stuff. Looks like I'll have to stick a wet finger in the air to see what blade to use. I have the lift kit but I removed the left side baffle that was provided. Will be sticking with this set up.
