What’s the difference between high-lift and mulching blades?

High-lift blades, a.k.a. standard blades or two-in-one blades, are the most commonly used blades for push and riding lawn mowers. Their “high-lift” design allows for greater airflow, enabling cleaner cutting and faster discharging of the grass clippings back to the lawn or into a bag. Note that high-lift blades are not an option if your lawn mower exclusively mulches or if you’ve installed a mulching kit on it.
