Gator mulching blade

I submitted this review of the “Gator” mulching blade for the 28″ Snapper HiVac mower earlier tonight on Amazon, and I figured I might as well post it here….  The Gator blade has a unique design, but it didn’t work well for me. *Please see my 11/22/11 update on the Gator mulching blade.* I purchased […]

Bing beats Google?
