Has anybody used the high lift blade on the 20" brushless mower (LM2022SP) for grass mulching?

I have seen a few posts on mulching leaves and debris.  But I am just interested in how well this blade does for grass mulching?  I don't want to have this shipped from UK to find it does a worst job of grass mulching that the standard blade.

Thanks for the information, but I was hoping for 20" HL blade for gen 3 information because I have heard that each configuration have very different characteristics.

The results have varied as reported here by users.
The HL blade is not designed for mulching but some have reported better mulching results. The Hl blade is designed for more lift and thus bagging. The standard blade is designed for mulching and bagging.
Personally my results with the 21” match the designed intentions. The standard blade mulches better and the HL blade bags better.
Unfortunately you would have to try it to see how it performs on your grass type and thickness at the cutting height you prefer.

His review:

His setup: "No, mine is for the 21" Self Propelled, but I am sold on it.  Had I not lucked out an got one on Amazon, I would have bought one from the UK knowing what I know now.  We all tried waiting on Ego but there comes a time when you have to fend for yourself!"

Also interested in the HL 20 inch blade. Not the modified blade.
