Default Correct Mower Blades?

I recently bought a Gravely 16G 50" cut with three basket bagger. I have not tried the bagging system out, and I have never owned one. It has new blades now but they look like regular blades, not "high lift".
Will "gator" type mulching blades do better on this machine or do I need to get "high lift" or just use what I have:confused?

I'm not familiar with your particular mower, but have a Cub Cadet with a bagger that I still sometimes use. I never could really tell much difference between the standard and bagger blades.

Hope this helps.

I used gator blades on my Honda lawn mower and found them great. They shred and lift the grass which should make it even better for bagging. Finer grass is lighter and moves out to the bag easier.

Now have a Gravely PM 320 but are still using standard blades. Will switch to gators when the time comes.
