Exactly. And if you see blue, its bad.

all good information.. except I guess for the sword sharpening guy (although I did get a good chuckle).

Thanks for the help guys.. I did buy one of those Lee valley sharpening stones, but didn't have it in time, so I just used the grinder as usual.

Note, there was alot of grass clumped up under the deck, so the air flow issue may have been more the cause than was the blades sharpness.

Default I like the Lee Valley myself

Everyone has a portable drill. I keep mine in the truck with a sharpener from Lee Valley. Works perfect for an on the job sharpening or when your blades just need touched up.

I have two Scag 61 mowers. One is a 3 wheel front deck, which I use as a back-up mower. The other is a 2008 wildcat zero turn velocity deck 30hp Kohler. My question is regarding the wildcat. Have any of you used this Chute master product or any others with a favorable outcome? I have both open lawns (with no beds) and residential lawns (with mulched beds). I still need an open chute for the open lawns, as sometimes these lawns have heavier discharge. I have a bagging system that I use after hedge trimming and for leaf cleanup, but would like to mulch most of the time on my residential's. What do you guys use? What has worked for you and what hasn't? I use both hi lift blades and hi lift gator blades, but need to switch back & forth between mulching and straight discharge. What do you guys do?
