What's the difference between a high lift blade and a mulching blade?
People also ask, are high lift blades better?
Low-lift mower blades perform well on dry, shorter grasses, while high lift blades work better in ALL conditions. High-lift blades have deeper curves on the ends, which create enough suction to circulate and expel the clippings. The higher air flow also helps prevent clogging when mowing tall or wet grass.
Subsequently, question is, are mulching blades worth it? A good mulching blade is worth it's weight in money. Look at the higher dollar Honda's. When they mulch, it's almost like dust. To take full advantage of using mulch is you want those clippings to be cut up as small as possible so they decompose faster.
Likewise, are high lift blades good for mulching?
Standard and high-lift blades are straight and aerodynamic as possible to create a powerful lift that will expel the grass clippings from under the deck. Standard blades are the ideal choice when mulching the grass clippings may not be an option. Mulching blades feature more curves and an increased cutting edge.
What is the difference between high lift and medium lift mower blades?
Blades with a higher lift require more power. Mowers that are not equipped with enough horsepower may have a hard time cutting grass with high lift blades. Sand and dust sucked into the deck can prematurely wear the blades and equipment. Medium Lift – 3/4 in. to 15/16 in.
