(What's this)
These blades cut grass like there are mad at it! I was worried about them fitting, but they matched up perfect, and they come sharp. Took two minutes to put on, and the left a perfect cut. I do not have a mulching guard, but Cubs throw the grass out far, so I don't really think you need one with this tractor paired with these blades. I could not see any grass strands laying on top of the freshly cut lawn because they mulch the grass so fine. A bit pricey, but they are well worth the money
