Blade for Snapper riding mower. I have two blades for my riding mower. One is the double cut mulching blade and the other is a single cut hi lift blade. The mulching blade cuts the grass very finely but does not lift the grass to get a good clean cut. The hi lift blade gives a clean cut but the cut grass looks like hay. Question....Is there a blade available that will do both jobs, lift and finely cut too?

Broadly speaking, lawnmowers come in two styles---the reel, typified by your venerable unpowered push mower, and the deck, or rotary, which describes most of today's powered, walk-behind machines---so deciding between blade designs is simple. Some brands of deck mowers accept several types with slight differences in performance and function. Still, mower blades made by different companies do not fit all types of machines even if the deck measurements are the same. Choices for older machines could be limited.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

    Reel Blades
  1. Still appropriate for small yards, the wheels of push mowers drive a blade cage revolving against a cutting bar with a fast, scissoring action as owner-operators provide the motive force. Sharp blades make a noticeable difference in ease of operation. The only blade option is the one that fits, so replacing the mower could be as reasonable as replacing the blades.
  2. Deck Blades
  3. Deck mowers cut with many variations of the same basic blade---a flat horizontally mounted steel bar that revolves like a fan blade and cuts with both leading edges. Blade shape and mounting hub could be uniquely shaped to fit one company's model of mower. Universal mounting blades do not fit all machines. Your best source for replacement blades or alternative blade designs is the company that made the mower.
  4. Lifting Blades
  5. As the rotary mower passes across your lawn, the deck presses down the blades of grass. Air pressure from the cutting blades may keep the grass down, resulting in a ragged cut. In heavy grass, tufts and rows of partly cut grass often lift up behind the mower. With lifting blades, a section of the blade's back edge turns up toward the deck. The draft generated by this blade shape pulls grass up, toward the cutting deck, and improves the quality of the cut. Blades are available in low-lift and high-lift designs for some machines.
  6. Mulching Blades
  7. Mowing a healthy stand of grass creates a large amount of clippings. Left in clumps on the yard, the clippings can suffocate and kill small patches of lawn. To reduce this problem, mulching blades use high-lift designs with added features like notched or rake-toothed lifting edges. Because of this extra blade action, clippings revolve beneath the deck for a longer time. The mower chops them into a fine mulch that disappears between grass stems and fertilizes the lawn.
  8. Tips
  9. While high-lift and mulching blades are an improvement over the simplest blade designs, do not expect perfect results. Mulching heavy or damp grass often clogs a mower deck with clippings, bogging down or stalling the machine. Cutting several inches of tall grass will not yield a clean-cut, finely mulched lawn in one pass. Adjusting mower height downward by one or two inches per pass gives better results. Dull blades exaggerate all problems.

yes that is most likely the cause of it, also, you have to cut more often when mulching, and the higher the cutting deck, the more likely the grass will blow out without getting mulched enough. More than likely, the blades are dull, and/or the grass is too high, or possibly even wet if it is high.

Rear bag not collecting grass


Check the blade is on right side up - this is about the only thing that makes a difference - the blade - if a mulch blade may be making the cuts too small to toss them into the bag ?

My john deere lt 133 mower with a double blade mulching deck, 1 blade stopped working and only 1 blade cuts now, how do i fix this. Thanks Patrick


This model mulching deck uses a flat/ribbed serpentine belt that is set at very high tension.When belt breaks under the cover only one blade will turn due to IT being driven from PTO clutch as the other blade being turned from serpentine belt.This deck was Deere's first and last shot at making a true mulching deck and only made it a couple years.When you buy the VERY expensive belt it will come with detailed instructions on how to install it.Goog luck.

The straight blade for the 42 inch mower is 138971.They cut better and are easier to sharpen and you will need them if you use a gass catcher. If you do not want to use sears for parts you may be able to find good deals on ebay.

What is the difference in a regular blade and a mulching blade?


A regular blade has a straight cutting edge, a mulching blade is bent to have a high and low cutting edge. Even if you have a mulching blade on, if the grass is too high or wet or you're cutting too low, it won't do a good job and may require a second pass.Raising your cutting height can help. Hope this helps. Dwain
