I just hate importing into Canada and paying those duty. I've ordered too many stuff from the States that I don't want to do this anymore. It's more of a hassle than anything else. I end up paying 2x or sometimes 3x the price if i would of ordered it from Canada

I can completely understand! Honestly, you would probably pay about the same from your local shop and you would have the convenience of walking in and picking them up. But in case you change your mind, I am here!!

I actually started with Gators.


I like 'em, but this last set of blades I bought last week are mulching blades. The wavy mulching blades.

I think I need the baffle that goes under the deck between the blades, it directs the airflow, maybe even increases suction.

The gator blades are awesome! We use them on all our mowers. If you're bagging your clippings you can make more passes before you have to dump your bag. It also makes it so we don't have to double cut on slightly longer grass.

I know, i bought another regular set from Husqvarna i think they were like $25 each or something like that. I laughed when the guy told me the price of the mulch blades. I was like wow, order me 50 as a joke lol
