These blades can range from the standard, all-purpose, 2-in-1, and so on, to name a few. But all these kinds of blades can be categorized into three general types of blades of lawnmowers. These types are discharging, mulching, or bagging. Each type will be discussed below.

Functions of each type

You should know which mower blade works for you. You should get help through reviews, according to Homegearexpert.com. The first type of mower blades is the discharging blades. These blades are for moving the grass clippings out from under the deck. This type of blade is often called the standard blades or the 2-in-1 blades, used for bagging. This type of blade has a design that is curved along the edge that allows the blade to pull the grass up for cutting.

The blades that use this method are called lifting blades that have 3 types: Low-lift, medium-lift, and high-lift. For taller and denser grass, you will need a high-lifting blade that requires more horsepower.

The second type of mower blades is the mulching blades. These blades make grass clippings disappear by recirculating it through the blades, cutting the clippings to a finer result. The resulting clippings will be smaller and will decompose at a quicker pace. This type of blade has a longer curved surface than the standard blade, and it usually has extra cutting surfaces along the edge. It also comes with a mulching kit that includes a discharge opening and hardware for installation.

Lastly, there are the bagging blades. These blades are not often sold on its own but packaged as a 2-in-1 or 3-on-1 with other blade types. This type is often multi-purpose so you can bag and discharge or mulch while using this blade.
