Oregon blades
 
I ordered a set of Oregon blades for my Toro and I've got to say that I recommend them over OEM. The OEM blades just do not hold an edge and the tips round out after one day's mowing. Even without scuffing the blades on a rock they just dull too quickly.

On the other hand the Oregon blades seem to hold a good edge for up to two weeks and sharpening them takes a few swipes and you're done.

I don't know if they are harder than the Toro OEM blades but I'm switching to Oregon for regular mowing and I'll keep the 8 sets of Toro blades for leaf season.



(The reason I switched to Oregon blades was simply to avoid going to my local Toro dealer ever again. The prices for 2 blades swings from $30 to $46 depending on who rings you up and I'm pretty much done with them and their hard sales techniques.)

I'll have to see if they sell blades for my Super Recycler.

I don't know if it's because it's a residential mower, but the blades don't seem to stay sharp very long.


FYI, the two OEM blades for my Ferris cost $60. :eek:
