Gator style mulching blade. When is EGO going to come out with a true mulching blade? I think this would help with mulching compared to othr

Looks really interesting

How about a link and size specs?

I'm sure it mulches well, but doesn't look like something that would ever work well on an electric mower.  It probably weighs a lot and causes a lot of air resistance, thus the motor will have to work harder.  Then the battery life will be terrible.  All it takes is a dull blade for my battery life to go down, and down a lot.  From roughly 45 minutes to an hour, down to 20'ish minutes.  Huge difference with blade variances.

That is why EGO needs to make one with the same thickness of metal that they make their current blades.

Only ego blades on the ego mowers unless you want to void your warranty.

I'm not suggesting to put an aftermarket blade on. I am suggesting that EGO should make a gator style blade to put to rest all the talk about it not being able to mulch well.

Not a bad idea. 
The standard blade is technically an all purpose mulch or bag design. 
The High Lift blade is designed for bagging.
So, you are on track to suggest a mulching exclusive blade.
I like your suggestion.
