      I get mine here

      This is a fairly small area so I pretty much have to get them mail order.

          Hey Justin
          I get mine from any farm and home type store. Check your mower dealers too. Anyone who sells mowers will know about them and can either provide you another place close to get them or order them for you. The only drawback with gator blades is they are heavier and you may lose a tiny amount of power and they don't do well in thick, wet grass, but boy are they sure worth it when it comes to fall cleanups. They are God's gift when it comes to annihilating leaves!!

            That was so corny... but I want to try them, lol!

            I understand what they do, sorta, but how?

            We see a video of what happens in slow mow, the grass is finely cut up, but doesn't that have something to do with more than just blades? Or is it the angle of the blades? The cut grass is bounced upwards to be cut several times or what?

            I don't have them, but my walk behind does the same thing.

            Any other vids????

                  You are correct. They are Oregon. Oregon blades are some of the best around. I am sure your local servicing dealer can get them for you no problem. For me, they vary in price from $15+, depending on the manufacturer they are replacing. Like I posted in another thread, they now have some that have fusion technology which is suppose to make them tougher and make them last longer between sharpening.

                  You will love them,

                    I buy them from this company below, I have around 30+ clients using them also, clients that we do spraying for however they mow their own lawns, the service and speed from these guys is excellent and they ship USPS which saves a lot, get a spare set as they are not expensive at all but get the high lifts>

                      Geez, if you guys are getting them shipped to you from the US, let know and I am sure I can get them to you for the same price, or cheaper. Let me know what you need blades for (if you have the part #, that would be best). If Gator blades are available for a mower then I can get them.

                      Justin,

                      I don't think the gator Blades are not available yet for your mowers (If I recall correctly both of your mowers are Husqvarna?). But to make sure, give me the blade # or if nothing else, the mower model and serial # and I will double check and get back with you. On that note, I can also get the original blades and Oregon replacement blades for most mowers.


                      Thanks,
                      Eli

                          I found a set in Oregon, under Husqvarna Turf.
                          The Gator options are:

                          Option 1: Gator 3 in 1 Hi-Lift, $53.19 (shipping included) for set of 3,

                          Option 2: Gator 3 in 1 Magnum (extra heavy duty ~ .250" thick instead of .203" thick), $73.53 (shipping included) for set of three,

                          Option 3: Gator 3 n 1 Fusion (see this Fusion fact sheet), also extra heavy duty, $94.43, shipping included for set of 3,

                          Option 4: Gator Mulcher G6, This blade is supposed to be the Cadillac of lawn mower blades and has these features:
                          1. Superior mulching,
                          2. Superior bagging,
                          3. Superior side discharge,
                          4. X-Tended Cutting Length (TM) - Longer cutting edge,
                          5. Thicker and wider (3" wide instead of 2 1/2" and .250" thick instead of .203"),
                          6. Fusion - Stays sharp longer,
                          7. Same price as option 2!! Only $73.53 with shipping included!


                          I would recommend option 4. All of these prices are typical prices w/o shipping but I am willing to pay the shipping if you buy the blades from me (see, contrary to popular belief, I am a nice guy!).

                          Let me know what you decide,
                          Eli

                          PS: I will do my best to match anyone else's prices within reason.

                              Justin, shipping is cheap, I pay around $12.00 for two sets.

                              Anyhow make sure you promote you are using these, I have found it a tremendous selling tool as the competition, around here, doesn't seem to even know how to sharpen the factory blades.
