2 blade vs 3 blade...

I'm getting close to picking my tractor I have two options and am wondering will a 2 blade 42" deck or a 3 blade 45" deck do a better job of mulching and general mowing or won't I notice the difference? I know the 3 blade obviously has 1 more blade, spindle, etc to worry about repairing but I'm just curious how the cut compares.

I don't have a preference myself. I get a nice cut with my 3 blade decks. I have a 44" craftsman that's about 21 years old and it cuts very nice. I also have a 60" Kubota diesel with a 3 blade deck that does a nice job (although not as nice as the craftsman).
