Have you ever tried cutting grass with the tree saw blade on your trimmer/brushcutter?? Will it cut? Yes. Is the string better? DEFINITELY!!

A blade needs to do three things...

1) Lift the grass after the tires and front of the deck have pushed it over

2)Cut the grass

3)Propel the grass out the discharge of the deck

I think a regular blade or better yet a Meg-Mow (i think) setup like kevin has been reporting on this summer are about as good as you need in the cutting department.

The area for improvement is in the airflow under/through the deck. Perhaps installing a fan blade of some sort directly above the cutting blade to lift the air (and with it the grass) and blow it out the discharge chute would improve performance and cut?
